This glamorous necklace is one of the most wonderful Art Deco designs I have come across. Total Hollywood glamour girl circa 1930's..I can just envision Joan Crawford in this piece. It is a drippy collette or bib style neckace with cascades of cobalt sectagonal shaped stones prong set within intricate antiqued silver filigree lozenges, each measuring 1 1/8 by 1/2". The longest of the individual cascade dangles is 4". They literally glow as some of the stones are cut in as to reveal a star shape within. There are a few different variations to the colors of blue in the stones and to the cuts themselves. It is unmarked but most likely European in origin, Czechoslovakian, French or possibly German. The gold tone metal looks to be gold plated over brass and the silver filigree is a heavy base metal. The round etched link necklace is gold over gilt and measures 15 1/2" around and fastens with a simple spring ring. There is no damage, just a couple of miniscule fleabites to a couple stones, only visible under very strong magnification. Age appropriate wear to the gold plating. Original patina as it has not been cleaned. This is definitely a one of a kind piece. I love that this necklace is two toned. It is bold and incredibly beautiful.. sure to grace the most lovely plunging neckline and be a real head turner. Perfect to bring out the goddess in you!
