This is an exceptionally lovely vintage Art Deco necklace in sterling silver set with marcasites and a carnelian cabochon. The pendant portion is set with an oval carnelian cabochon surrounded by marcasites. The stone tests in the quartz range on the gemstone tester, so it is a natural stone and not glass. The chain is made up of ornate links each set with a marcasite. It fastens with a spring ring catch and it is marked Sterling on both the back of the pendant and the catch. This wonderful necklace is fresh from a local North Carolina estate.
It measures 16 inches and the pendant is about 1 inch by 3/4 inch. It is in very good condition. I don't see any missing marcasites or other issues. The silver has a dark patina which I have left since many people like this.
