14Kt. Gold Etruscan Revival Style Necklace - Circa 1950

This wonderful circa 1950 gold necklace is proof of that saying that styles are cyclical. During the 50's you could find necklaces, earrings & watches with covers over their faces that were all in the Victorian Etruscan Revival style from the late 19th. century. We are very pleased to be able to offer you this wonderful quality piece. The parts that comprise the necklace have good weight/depth. The chain portions of the necklace are very substantial - not at all flimsy with the neck chain being 3/8" in width & a little over 1/16" in depth. It is attached to a focal point of a faux buckle with wider chain, an end cap & braided fringe with ball tips. Both the buckle & end cap are accented with graduated sizes of gold balls & black enamel.

The gold is in excellent condition with no dents, rips, broken/missing pieces or repairs. There are NO dents on the backside of the closure, that is reflection from it's soft curve caused by the imprint of the karat stamp. All portions of the chains have good flexibility - no stiff joints from repairs. All strands of fringe are there and are the appropriate lengths with their ball tips intact. The clasp is firm & closes with a soft click. All of the black enamel appears to be there. The back of the clasp has the 14K mark & the back of the buckle has a makers mark. Discounting the closure flange the total of the chain is approx 14 3/4". Adding the space above the buckle to this measurement makes it a little under 15 1/4". From the top of the buckle to the base of the ball fringe is 2 1/4" with the widest point being 1" thru the buckle. The necklace weighs 54 grams. A wonderful quality 50's necklace in outstanding condition.
