Vintage Art Deco Germany Sterling Marcasite Cultured Pearl NECKLACE & EARRINGS Set

DESCRIPTION:
This is a Magnificent German Vermeil Sterling Art Deco Necklace & Earrings Set featuring an articulated Bow/Ribbon design and embellished with marcasites and genuine cultured pearls

The german silversmiths of the art deco era were some of the finest, if not the finest, silversmiths of the time and in my opinion, to date. You just don’t see jewelry constructed like this any more. This is a definite heirloom quality set that is sure to be cherished for generations to come.

The craftsmanship and detailed work in these pieces makes them works of art. Truly masterfully designed and constructed with impeccable attention to the most minor details. Each marcasite along the chain is hand-set in its individual setting and reinforced with spike prongs. Each setting is connected in a book-chain effect allowing the necklace to caress and move on the neck. The bow/ribbon is done in a pierced open-work design and completely encrusted in genuine marcasites that dazzle with mirror flashes with the slightest of movement. Through the center of the Bow/Ribbon are small petals alternating with genuine cultured pearls emitting opalescence and lustre only genuine pearls could accomplish. The Bow/Ribbon design flares out in a rigid frame and each portion from the arms to the tails and the center piece, all pivot in an articulated fashion.

Finally, the necklace terminates with a hidden push clasp and a side safety clasp.

The Earrings are clip backs, and also have an articulated design in the same bow/ribbon design of the necklace with the tails of the ribbon trailing downward

Necklace features 22 cultured pearls measuring 3mm
Earrings feature 10 (5 on each) cultured pearls measuring 3 mm
