Not all jewelry is created equal

It's Sunday funday over here at Porter Jensen, and we have a healthy dose of fabulousness to share!
  
We recently acquired some extremely cool, vintage Mexican silver. These creations are by Los Castillo from Taxco, Mexico.

 Circa mid 1940's, this style has stood the test of time. Imitations of this necklace are still being made.

Heavily influenced by Aztec art, Los Castillo silver jewelry is known for unique designs paired with a particularly high level of workmanship. 

 Circa 1950, this set makes a bold statement.

Los Castillos are sought after by collectors, as they are wearable art. Most modern silver jewelry simply lacks this attention to detail.

These little pieces of history are fully fashion-functional- perfect for a night on the town, or maybe even this year's Dia De Los Muertos party!
