You don’t need to be hopelessly in love with Mexican jewelry to love Taxco. You will be hooked anyway once you set foot in the picturesque little Mexican town, located just over 100 miles southwest of Mexico City. It happened to me, too. No one is immune.
Exploring the Home of Taxco Silver
The traditional, well-preserved colonial little town is the perfect destination for a romantic weekend, or just a day trip, and is sure to charm you with its stunning architecture, amazing artistry, challenging steep cobbled streets (cardio fanatics, this one’s for you!), ancient churches and, yes…silver. The precious metal will be the leitmotif of your trip to Taxco because…it’s literally everywhere. The city has stayed loyal to its silver mining past, and today it is a heaven for silver lovers.
Known as one of the oldest mining sites in the Americas, Taxco has attracted early conquistadors with its wealth: precious silver. To celebrate this natural gift, every year, during the last week of November, Taxco honors its treasure with the world famous Silver Fair (Feria Nacional de La Plata). This is the perfect opportunity for silversmiths, craftsmen, and artists to showcase their work and compete for the “best silver artist of the Fair” prize. You might want to plan your trip accordingly.
If you are lucky enough to visit this little corner of paradise (Taxco is also known as “el pueblo magico” - you will understand why once you are there), you will be wowed by the never-ending string of silver shops (platerias) that feature traditional Mexican silver pieces, such as jewelry, statuettes, platters, etc. Frequently, these goods are created on-site by skilled artisans, offering passers-by a feast for the eyes.
The International Fame of Mexican Jewelry
If Taxco is not a place you will be visiting in the near future, there is still hope: you can enjoy wearing gorgeous Mexican jewelry by ordering it online. There, problem solved. Thanks to the technology-oriented world we live in, the internet made the silver pieces crafted in this tiny corner of the world available throughout six continents to a varied international clientele. This only means that the number of people wearing jewelry made in Taxco is today higher than ever, and growing.
The Mexican jewelry industry has earned its undisputed place in the world. Despite a constant evolution of jewelry trends over the years (endless styles that gained, but also lost popularity) Taxco silver has always been praised and sought after for its high quality by silversmiths and jewelry lovers alike. Jewels are symbolic pieces with sentimental value for most people (if we think about it, almost every important moment in our lives is sealed with a precious piece of jewelry). Besides, with time, high-end jewelry can also become an interesting investment given that its value tends to rise.
Tradition, Craftsmanship, Inspiration
Whether they are artisans or people continuing a family tradition, the crafty Mexican jewelry makers who have been designing beautiful pieces in Taxco for decades are always setting new trends and innovating exciting styles and techniques. However, as with everything, practices have evolved, and today many modern jewelry designers are using software, 3D printing and laser instead of the traditional molds. Labor is skilfully combined with technology and the results are simply spectacular.
Mexican jewelry takes inspiration from the country’s rich history, traditions, culture, and nature. The mix of ancient customs and modern sophistication is a winning one, as shown by the huge popularity of Mexican silver jewelry around the world.
It may come as a surprise that most of the precious metals like silver and gold sold in the U.S. come from Mexico. This only shows the significant role Mexican jewelry plays in the U.S. jewelry market, with its high-quality materials and gorgeous designs.
