ART NOUVEAU 12K Gold, Enamel, Amethyst & Natural Pearl Festoon Necklace
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer for your consideration....
AGE: C.1910 (Art Nouveau Period)
ITEM: A yellow gold and enamel festoon necklace featuring natural seed pearls and faceted amethysts. It's not often you see a festoon necklace in an Art Nouveau styling so I was thrilled to have found this beauty!
The center design depicts a lotus blossom above a bit of curlicue work (representative of leaves) with a pearl drop at the bottom. The effect with the festoon tiers is wonderful.
CONDITION: Excellent with no problems I can spot.
METAL CONTENT: 12K Gold
HALLMARKS: None which is normal for pieces of jewelry from this time period. Gold has been acid tested for content (holds strongly at 10K and just barely at 14K - so the gold content is somewhere in between the two numbers).
SIZE: Neck length is 15"; to lengthen just add some jump rings and more chain at the back. From top of round amethyst to bottom of pearl measures 1-5/8".
WEIGHT: 5 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: They don't make 'em like this anymore!
