This is such a stunning vintage Art Deco style pendant in polished black onyx, sterling and marcasite. The oval shaped black onyx pendant is bezel set in smooth sterling silver. Swirls of sterling drape the body of the pendant in a draping effect. Little bands of marcasite in between lines of sterling accent each swirl. The bale even has little tiny marcasites. The letters 'sterl.' can be located on the back of the small bale. The inside of the bale measures about 3mm across and will accept a finer gauge chain.
This pendant measures 2 inches high by about 1.25 inches wide. It weighs about 10.1 grams of sterling. It is circa 1970-1980. Overall condition is very good previously owned vintage.
