Marked: TE-05. 925 Mexico Taxco Mexican silver & jewelry is usually clearly marked, but in reality, hallmarking standards in Mexico were not enforced rigorously. The notation "STERING" along with the number 925 or 960 as the case may be as to its pure silver content in thousands, is a frequent marking on Jewelry since early 20th century. in most cases, the place of origin is marked as in Hecho in Mexico (means made in Mexico) or simply MExICO. in the case of Taxco Silver, the work TAxCO was also included, especially after 1930's when the region had by then become famous for its high - quality jewelry. During certain periods starting ca l950's, we also see the traditional Mexican Eagle mark. in two formats, with a number on its chest indicating either the city of origin or the registration number of the artisan or studio that used it as a copyright symbol to confirm his or her identity as the maker and/or designer. Around late 1970's, the Eagle mark was replaced with an Initials + Number mark, for example TC-22, which indicates the initial letter of the place & the initial letter of the name of each artisan, along with a sequence registration number based on when this mark was filed with the authorities. Some examples of common city initials include the following: T for Taxco, M for Mexico City, & C for Cuernavaca. The vast majority of Taxco Silver items or jewelry were made using sterling silver. in general, it is quite rare to encounter silverplated items from Mexico. Sterling Silver in Mexican jewelry ranged from 900 to 980 in pure silver content as expressed in the thousands scale & items were marked accordingly & most often accurate. The most common assay mark is for 925, especially since 1950s onward. sterling Silver Dangle Earrings, Vintage 925 Taxco Mexico Drop Earrings
