The style of this necklace is what Art Deco was all about. The strong geometric lines, sculpted shapes and streamlined form is a departure from the fluid and floral Art Nouveau shapes.
This lovely necklace was crafted in Continental Europe around 1920. It is not hallmarked but we attribute it to Germany. We carefully tested it and the fact that it is 14 karat white over yellow gold fits this most likely origin. White gold was patented in Germany in 1912 and become very popular in the 1920's. The soft sheen of the white gold enhances the geometric shapes and styling - it is so reminiscent of the beautiful decorations you see on the Art Deco furniture and buildings in Europe. The floral motif running through the centre is set with rose cut diamonds as is the articulated drop. The wearable length of the necklace is 19.75 inches ( the length of the chain plus the width of the pendant at the top ). The chain could be shortened if you would so prefer and we can do this for you. The yellow gold of the underside matches the gold colour of the chain perfectly. The chain has a great, geometric and substantial link, not flimsy but safe and secure. It weighs 3.6 grams. The clasp has been changed from the original 14K one to a modern 18K clasp, hallmarked 750 for 18K gold. The face of the pendant measures 30.3 mm north to south by 16.3 mm side to side. This lovely necklace is a perfectly wearable size and would make a wonderful bridal pendant or can be worn daily. It is in super antique condition.
We love ... Art Deco vibe and this necklace has it in abundance. A feminine shape and the strong style, always a winning combination!
