Malachite Set in sterling, necklace and bracelet.
This Vintage Demi Parure is circa 70's, but really, the design is classic and would be considered a graceful beauty in any decade. My pictures are not really good enough, in person, the set is exquisite.
It is wonderful to see something as well made as this. The Malachite cabochons are perfectly matched, bezel set in sterling silver, stamped 950. It is very fluid, each link is hinged and moves very smoothly. It lies perfectly flat around the neck. Both pieces have a push in clasp with a fold over safety catch. It may be rhodium plated as it does not tarnish much, if at all and looks more like platinum than sterling.
The links are 5/16" by 1/4". The necklace is 17 1/2" long, the bracelet, 7 1/4". This set is my sister's.
