Have you always dreamed of owning and wearing a beautiful plique a jour necklace hand crafted by a master artisan like Lalique?
This necklace was hand crafted in barcelona by "Nouveau 1910" utilizing the same techniques and processes used by the Modernist masters over 100 years ago. This fine piece of jewelry is heavy 18 karat gold with natural Diamonds and Sapphires and painstakingly crafted Plique a jour enamel in beautiful pastel shades. The chain has a lovely flowing link and is graduated in size from 6.7 mm - 4 mm wide. The chain is removable allowing you to wear the pendant as a brooch. The clasp is a box style with tension tongue which slips into the box and has a hinged figure eight safety catch. The pin stem latches tightly with a trombone style clasp which covers the pin point and protects you when you are wearing the piece as a necklace. Each link of the chain is an elegant Art Nouveau style swirl gracefully echoing the beautiful pendant. The pendant features a reclining Art Nouveau style lady, her arm outstretched and holding a bezel set Diamond. Behind the golden lady, a sunrise of plique a jour enamel in shades of blues fading to pinks. The light shines through the enamel like stained glass, illuminating it! Around the frame of the piece, more Nouveau style swirls are decorated with enamel is shades variegated from blues to peach. A pear shaped Sapphire is prong set in a dangle at the bottom of the pendant and a single round Sapphire is prong set at the top of the pendant.
