SOLD Art Deco Crysoprase & Rock Crystal 9ct Gold Necklace
An absolutely beautiful quality necklace from the 1920s. The chain is made from 9ct gold, though has the beautiful buttery colour of 15ct gold, and has a lovely heavy weight to it considering its relative daintiness. The necklace has four little sections along it at equal distance from the clasp. These sections are comprised of two domed shaped cyrsoprase with a faceted rock crystal bead between the two. This style of necklace was quite common during this period and the regular spacing of these little areas of detail allow for a pendant to be hung centrally at the bottom, though the necklace can also be worn alone.
A truly eye-catching and interesting chain.
