RARE Accessocraft N.Y.C. Byzantine-Egyptian Revival Runway Couture Pendant Necklace
This stunning runway necklace was made by Accessocraft in 1970. It is usually found in shiny gold plate, but this rare one is done in dark grey gunmetal! The focal point of this impressive necklace is a massive pendant done in a fantastic Etruscan revival style that also has attributes of Egyptian, Byzantine and North African jewelry design.
The pendant has a wonderful shape, almost like a warrior's shield, with pretty scrollwork cutouts. The surface is treated with raised diamond shapes and raised round forms with raised beaded detailing. The pendant features two large oval cabochons in dark red carnelian and lapis blue art glass. At the bottom of this large pendant jump rings suspend a smaller pendant with a small round faux carnelian glass cabochon. From the bottom of this small pendant hang two tiny bell shaped charms.
This runway pendant is suspended from an equally grand collar necklace. This collar is comprised of nine gunmetal tone panels, linked by jump rings. A hook clasp secures the necklace at the other end of the collar.
Necklace is hallmarked "Accessocraft N.Y.C." on a round cartouche on the back of the pendant. Maximum length of collar necklace is 17" inches. Pendant length is 8" inches. This chic necklace is in pristine, excellent condition. Last spring, a gold version of this necklace was shown on a model in Mademoiselle magazine.
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: gunmetal gray, carnelian red, lapis blue, Size: XL
