Art Deco pendant and chain necklace with rock crystal, blue chalcedony, carnelian, and onyx stones framed in sterling with two marcasites. Architectural and geometric, this long pendant plays with shape, color, and texture beautifully: brilliant clear rock crystal quartz in a rectangular and triangular shapes; rectangular chalcedony and carnelian stones; and rectangular and triangular onyx-- all faceted, smooth, and sparkling. Two large marcasites serve as accents.
The construction and design of this pendant are characteristic of the superb German Deco jewels from the 1920s and '30s. It is marked Sterling, Germany, in several places (rubbed), and it comes with an old, 17" chain marked Sterling. The condition is excellent with no chips or scratches. Treasures like this one have become more and more scarce, so don't miss it.
