A lovely vintage Siam Sterling Silver niello pendant Necklace with matching Earrings and Bracelet. Of all four pieces, the only ones marked are the Earrings which are marked 'Siam Sterling' on the screw fittings, but the necklace and bracelet are Sterling Silver. As the country Siam changed it's name to Thailand officially in 1949, I would imagine that the set pre-dates that.
The Necklace measures 16 inches long and fastens with a sturdy v-spring clasp. The puffy pendant drops, which are identically patterned front and back, measure 1/2 inch across and 1 1/4 inches down. The Bracelet measures 7 3/8 inches long and fastens with a hook clasp and the puffy charm, again patterned identically on both sides, measures 3/8 inch wide and 5/8 inch down. The Earrings, on screw fittings, measure 1/2 inch wide and 1 5/8 inches top to bottom. The Earring puffy pendants, patterned identically on both sides, measure just over 1 inch top to bottom.
The Set is in excellent condition with no damage although I do wonder if the bracelet perhaps started life with more charms on it - but I have no way of knowing. The pieces are substantial, especially the necklace and earrings and all together the set weighs approximately 60 grams with the necklace weighing just under 44 grams, so these are not lightweight pieces.
