A beautiful necklace fashioned in Sterling Silver and lovely vivid blue geometric cut glass crystals. The fine trace link chain is decorated at centre front with square bezel open settings which are claw set with the beautiful crystals.
Each is table cut to the front with a pointy back. The open settings allow the light to flood through and make the most of the colour and the facets. Each is separated with a silver panel open worked with a North Star. At centre front another of these panels forms the dropper from which there is a square panel and crystal hung on the diagonal en tremblant.
These were called Negligee necklaces with good reason :- they are extremely flattering. The necklace fastens with a secure ring bolt clasp. There are no markings which was quite normal at this time but it has been tested as being Sterling Silver.
App 16 inches in length and 32 mm deep at centre front. The square panels are app 7 mm.The necklace came to me clean and i have needed to do nothing so it probably has never even been worn. I have looked at the crystals under a loupe and possibly a couple of pin pricks acquired over 100 years or so in storage. The blue is universally flattering against any skin tone. A wonderful gift for a Bride or for a Lady you love (even yourself). It will be presented in a gift box as shown in the last image. Most pieces are also listed elsewhere so first come first served. Any boxes, mannequins or fabrics are for display only.
Everything is photographed in natural light with a flash. We do not enhance colours but there could be difference between browsers etc. A bit about me : i worked for many years in the Antiques Trade specialising first in antique clothing and Textiles and then i specialised in Art Deco and Art Nouveau, generally glass and sculpture and metal ware.
I appeared on TV a few times as an Expert, served on Vetting Committees and so on. I try to follow the Reiki precepts one of which is'To earn an honest living'. Thank you for visiting Jewel Box.
