Taxco jewelry is authentic Mexican jewelry that comes from the city of Taxco, Mexico.
Taxco silversmiths have been perfecting their art for quite some time, and their pieces are available all throughout Mexico and the United States.
While some period pieces are rarer than others, the best way to know the significance of the Taxco jewelry you have is to date it.
