Western Silver and Silversmithing of North America began in Mexico. Cortes discovered Silver in Taxco and staked his claim in 1522. It is believed that the working of Silver into adornments began shortly after its discovery by Cortes. By the end of the 16th century Taxco had become famed throughout the world for the beauty & wealth of its silver. Early Conquistadors admired Silver and had horse regalia made from the metal which then spread the popularity of using Silver in adornments of all sorts, including Jewelry, to Mexico City and beyond.
