This set is my first experience with Cancun and Jewelry. I capitalize Jewelry here because Cancun is definitely full to overflowing with it, especially Sterling which is so abundant in Mexico. I wish the photograph showed the wonderfully crafted box clasp better. That is what impressed me most I think; I may not be able to make one but I know enough of silversmithing to recognize excellence. And the settings for the stones are cast, not stamped, meaning: that’s a lot of silver.
The stones were represented to me as Chrysacola; all I knew was that I wear a lot of greens and blues and I imagined how well any of them would look with this set of jewelry. So I bought several pieces, some with rectangles only and some with ovals only, asked that they be reassembled and had the extras made into a bracelet and earrings. The eagerness and skill of the artisans to make my design become reality was something new to me. I even had extra earrings, so I found a rectangular stone which could hang from a Sterling chain and now had a less formal look too. How exciting is that?
