This Arts and Crafts necklace is a marvel of two-tone design with its cat's eye stones picking up the tones of the oxidized silver pendant, and the tiger's eye picking up the tone of the 14 karat gold elements. The central silver cruciform pendant is suspended from a silver bar with small gold filigree medallions dangling from them. A pair of festoon chains encircles the neck, with additional cat's eyes and tiger's eye stones set in gold echoing the central composition. Additional filigree medallions dangle from these stones and are set into the chains. As an additional bonus, the clasp is set with a tiger's eye for a little flourish at the nape of the neck.
SIZE: 17" long. The central composition of cruciform pendant, and filigree dangles suspended from the horizontal silver bar is 2-7/8" long
MARKS: none. The gold has been acid tested as 14 karat, and the silver tests as sterling.
AGE: circa 1900
CONDITION: excellent antique condition.
