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.

These earrings were made during his classic Modernist period. The sleek design and quality work exemplifies why Antonio Pineda's work is still valued highly today.
