Offered is a absolutely OUTSTANDING Egyptian Revival/Cleopatra gold tone collar necklace with matching clip on earrings. The collar features 2 layers of interwoven beautiful gold tone rows flanked with 3 rows of woven gold tone mesh with an gorgeous center focal point featuring a triangular medallion. The medallion features an ornate framing with beautiful mill work and etchings throughout.
Centered in the medallion is a pair of spread eagle's wings with an emerald green cabochon in the center and emerald green baguettes on the top and the bottom of the wings. There is an upside down "V" row of emerald green baguettes, as well, on the top of the medallion giving the piece a look of royalty. Baguettes, cabochon, and single dotted emerald green rhinestone are all prong set, bright, and original to the set.
From the medallion is a row of 10 gold tone etched solid tubular linked chains that ends with another sort of tear drop shape dangle. Collar is hard t measure as it has a curvature to it and can not be straightened out. Measures approx 21" long which includes the extender and 1-1/4" wide. Has a 4" drop in the front and a "J" hook for closure and a single gold tone "ball" at closure end as well. Hallmarked "Rifas" in script on an oval Cartouche' on reverse side.
Clip on earrings follow through with the same motif, single emerald green central cabochon, single emerald green chaton, and 2 emerald green baguettes all set on a double triangular filigreed backdrop gold tone setting with the additional 5 etched dangle chains with tear drop endings. Earrings measure 2-1/4" long by almost 1" across. Clips are nice and tight. Earrings are not marked, but are an obvious match to the set. Very minor light wear only on reverse side of necklace along inner edge. In very good vintage condition.
This is definitely a gorgeous statement piece and stunning as well. Very well made, high end and a substantial piece. You won't be disappointed by this set. A very cool addition to your vintage jewelry collection.
