Art Deco Necklace Rock Crystal & Sterling Silver Vintage 1920s Geometric Jewelry – $195.00 – Sold Out
Quantity Available: 0
Superb Art Deco necklace of sterling silver framed square 8 facet natural rock crystal stones. This cut allows for the maximum amount of surface and light refraction. This is the same cut used on fine antique gemstones…the end result is a necklace that dances with light. A pendant in the shape of a pyramid dangles below, adding sparkling movement to the piece. Each stone is prong-set into a delicately embossed sterling silver open back setting. Captivating!
Measurements: 15″ long with the center drop adding another 1 ¼” – the crystals measure 8mm x 8mm
Condition: Very Good, with the crystals all present and tight in their settings. Next to the clasp there is one stone that has a corner chip which is not overtly noticeable, but mentioned for accuracy. The rest of the stones in the necklace are clean and crisply cut. There is just so much fire and reflectivity in this piece. The sterling frame & findings match perfectly and all appear to be original to date of manufacture. The sterling silver in the necklace exhibits a dark, glowing patina, adding to the old world look of the piece. This can be polished up to a mirror shine if you desire. The necklace is completely free of damage or verdigris other than that previously mentioned. The necklace fastens with an age appropriate thumb ring clasp.
Markings: STERLING, on clasp
Circa: 1920 – Art Deco era
Because of the superior refraction of rock crysta, that which rivals diamonds…these stones reflect whatever color they are next to… This is a versatile “wear with anything” piece. Here’s an incredible opportunity for the collector of fine Art Deco jewelry or would make a sublime necklace for the bride…
