This exquisite antique Art Nouveau pendant is a charming example of this period’s designs. Crafted in "15 carat gold" (marked on the back as shown in my photo) and set with a brilliant 1 ct faceted peridot and 4, 3point rubies, the tiny cultured seed pearls lighten the design. At the back of the pendant, there is a tiny hook which I assume was intended to fasten onto a garment for safety. The pendant is in wonderful condition.
For the design of this necklace, I wanted to bring out the stones of the pendant itself. But I did not want the necklace to be too refined, so I used rough cut faceted peridot, 6 mm, interspersed with faceted rubies, 3.5 mm, white, cultured freshwater seed pearls, 3 mm and handcrafted, traditionally made, 18 ct gold on resin beads from Afghanistan.
The toggle clasp is 14 karat gold and includes my silver copyright label.
The necklace in its entirety is 45 cm (17 ¾”) Long, with a pendant drop of 3.5 cm (1 1/5”)
The necklace comes in it’s own silk brocade draw-string bag, colour coordinated with the necklace and made by a Shanghai tailor. In this case, the brocade will be a lime green Chinese design. All my necklaces include a label describing the details of the necklace’s elements
This is a necklace that would grace any neck.
