Austro-Hungarian designs utilize silver gilt, stones and enamel to their very best advantage. The superb central element is a large faceted citrine. Beautifully executed blue enamel enhances the center element. Swirls of tiny pearls strung on wire form the additional outline. This striking pendant hangs from a chain of pearl studded flower-like creations.
The entire necklace measures 11 ½ inches. The pendant portion is 1 ¾ inch in width and two inches in length. It is ¾ inch deep. The clasp is clearly marked 925. The gilt is in excellent condition. We see a tiny bit of solder in one corner of the back of the pendent. There are no other faults we could find on close examination.
Truly an exciting piece of jewelry.
