Antonio Pineda is acknowledged as one of the Masters of silver jewelry during the Renaissance that occurred after the Mexican Revolution. When he a teenager, he was apprenticed briefly with William Spratling at Taller de las Delicias , where he learned to appreciate great design as well as developing his techniques of working silver. He later apprenticed with Valentin Vidaueretta, a painter and silversmith in Mexico City, returning to Taller de las Delicias as a salesman and manager. He opened his own taller in 1939 and by the early 1950s, was recognized internationally as a leading modernist artist. He work was prized internationally for its quality and design. 

The proportion of these earrings is very pleasing. The silver fleur-de-lis anchors a movable dangle of silver and turquoise. Quality of the earrings is high.
