Here in the Southwest we love our vintage Mexican silver because it just goes with the design aesthetic here. As you might imagine, there are cross-cultural design elements between our first love, Native American jewelry, and Mexican silver. William Spratling silver falls under that vintage Mexican silver umbrella even though he was American because he singlehandedly launched the Taxco, Mexico silver jewelry industry.

Collectors go crazy for Spratling Silver, especially the early pieces, and this simple yet heavy silver chain bracelet is one such piece. It's truly an elegant display of modern silver design prowess. If you're lucky enough to put this around your neck, you'll immediately realize why plain can silver be so magnificent. You can wear it flat against the skin or slightly askew.

This Spratling silver link necklace is meant to go with a William Spratling link bracelet, but it will also look magnificent with many of your Native American jewelry items.

If you look around, you'll see many necklaces that were inspired by this one, but this is the early original!

Each link in the silver chain measures 3/4" wide, and it measures 16" from end to end. It's stamped for William Spratling. Further Stamped "Made in Mexico" and is from the first design period, Circa 1940-1946.

This rare necklace is from the collection of a woman who primarily collected fine Native American jewelry but also acquired a few striking examples of fine vintage Mexican silver jewelry. 

Take a look at the other matching Spratling chain necklace in the large link size as well as the matching bracelet.
