Due to the shortage of metals for jewelry making during World War II, Coro contracted Hector Aquilar owner of Taller Borda Silversmiths to create jewelry for Coro in Mexico. This continued to about 1950.

These pieces are unique combining 1940s style and and Mexican creativity and craftsmanship. They are marked Coro, Mexico and either silver or sterling. The designs are not patented however as they did not involve Coro designers. Some pieces are washed in gold vermeil as is this rare bracelet.

This 1940s bracelet is very heavy, weighing 95 grams or 3.4 ounces. It is solid sterling silver that has been washed in gold vermeil. It is marked Made in Mexico, Coro, Sterling and is 7.25 inches long and 1 inch wide.

The bracelet reminds me of the crenelation along castle walls, each link being a separate tower. The links are connected via 3 bands wrapping all the way around and joined in the back. The clasp looks like another triple band but is fused and snaps down over a prong. This is one stable bracelet that is not going to fall off. Clasp is very sound.

The condition is very good. Much of the vermeil is worn off the back of the turrets but that only reveals silver. The front still looks gold washed. The triple connecting links were never gold.
