There are no proper words to describe the beauty of this 1950s design by Margot de Taxco; rich, elegant, ocean-green enamels  shimmer with tiny spots of yellow-green, orange, turquoise, and deep blue, and the construction of this set, alone, is magnificent; necklace is about 15" around with a 3-1/4" long center fish; bracelet is about 7" long x 1-1/2" wide; earrings are approximately 1-3/4" x 1/2"; necklace is marked: "MARGOT DE TAXCO, 5644" (other marks are illegible), bracelet is marked: "MARGOT DE TAXCO, 5644, MADE IN MEXICO, STERLING," and eagle mark with #16; earrings are not marked; the set is in fine condition with only a minute bit of enamel loss on the top of the wave coming from the fish on the center of the necklace.
