PLATA is silver in espanol so it does not mean "Plated". I doubt its a fake but its impossible to tell for sure from a photo. Beautiful!

Hi Lolo,
Literally translated ->
GAD (maker's initials)
Sterling
Made in Mexico
Silver 925

For an explanation of the mark on right with #219, see the Mexican Marks Page on this site.

Regards, Tom

ps. Spanish for plated = plateado
