Georg Jensen 830 Silver Necklace No. 1 with Green Chrysoprase.
Designed by Georg Jensen in 1904, this stunning piece has hallmarks from the 1920's.
This necklace is articulated beautifully so that it lays perfectly on the neck and breastbone. It is intricately detailed with stylized leaves and berries. The necklace has green chrysoprase gemstones with very fine color and opalescence.
This necklace is in exceptional condition with no signs of wear on links, the gemstones are vivid, and the silver has beautiful patina.
It appears that links were added to lengthen this necklace.
A similar example can be seen in the book Georg Jensen "A Tradition of Splendid silver" by Janet Drucker, pages 170 and 171.
This necklace is also featured in the book, GEORG JENSEN JEWELRY by Isabelle Anscombe, edited by David A. Taylor. Yale University Press, pg.176 and 177.
