Here we have a unique, custom-made antique necklace from Germany!
Antique cameo: A beautiful brass net carrying 24 cherry-red bohemian garnets is skillfully installed in a silver oval frame to give this beauty it`s unique charm. The pendant is fully hallmarked as 835 sterling silver and carries jeweler`s mark "DS".
Necklace: This beauty comes along with a genuine 'gold double'* necklace of 52 cm produced by Friedrich Binder jewelry manufacturer in Mönsheim, Germany. This factory exists since 1910 and is famous for it`s filled gold chains.
*To produce so-called 'Double Gold' a gold film is put under a high pressure on a brass plate. The sheet is then rolled out and processed into the so-called 'Double' jewelry. Other names for Doublé are American Gold or Filled Gold.
I believe that the chain did not originally belong to this cameo, but they look simply stunning together!
