Art Deco chalcedony and marcasite necklace c1930. This high quality necklace is undoubtedly German, and it resembles the necklaces made by Theodor Fahrner at that time (see the section called "Evening Jewelry" in the definitive Fahrner book, "...Between Avantgarde and Tradition.") Three large chalcedony stones (about 14mm square) are joined and separated by silver and marcasites to form an upward curve; there is one movable stone below on a hinge. This grouping attaches to a beautifully detailed silver link chain studded with marcasites. The chalcedony is blue-gray, a very mystical color. I love that Art Deco jewels look so timeless, and in this case, modern!
The necklace measures 16-1/4" long. The chain is 1/4" wide and is uniform in color, although my pictures make some links look darker than others.
The grouping of stones is 2-1/8" by 1-1/4". Marked 935, the silver is a higher grade than sterling. It weighs 47.6g.
The condition is excellent.
