Art Nouveau Antique 10K Gold White Gold Yellow Gold Amethyst Paste Negligee Necklace Lavaliere Necklace
Dating to the early 1900s may I offer this antique necklace that has an Art Deco look but is more than likely Art Nouveau. Known as a negligee necklace, the piece is very lightweight and is composed of a chain and a small bottom decoration that could be classed as a drop pendant. The white gold necklace has floral touches that have been kissed with yellow gold. The stone is amethyst colored and is a glass paste rather than a genuine stone. Fold over latch closure.
Condition: Very nice with no problems I can spot.
Metal Content: 10K Gold
Hallmarks: Pat 10-K on the clasp.
Size: Length of the necklace is 18". The design at the bottom measures 1-1/2" x 1-1/8".
Weight: 3 grams
Final Comments: A negligee necklace was a little something a lady wore with her negligee. It was meant to draw a man's attention to a lady's upper attributes! How they survived if the lady succeeded in her conquest, I will never know!
