Dates to the Arts & Crafts era, circa 1910.

Crafted in solid 14K yellow gold. Not hallmarked, but carefully acid tested. (The clasp is hallmarked, however it is a replacement, so testing was required to ensure the karat content of the gold of the remainder of the necklace.)

This gorgeous piece is most certainly one of a kind. The sinuous gold work is stunning, only matched by the perfection of the tiny hand-carved salmon coral cameo of a beautiful young woman. Above her is a delicately carved coral rose accent, and the base is finished with a coral cabochon dropper.

The pendant portion measures just under 3" from the top of the rose link to the base of the dropper, and has a maximum width of 1.26" from side to side, while the necklace portion measures 19.5" from end to end. This piece weighs 8 grams.

Condition is very good, with no damages. The upper chain appears likely to have been replaced, and the clasp is a replacement, but the main portion of the necklace is all original.
