Description

A beautiful antique pendant necklace reflecting the c1900 ideals of the Art Nouveau movement. Crafted throughout in 9ct yellow gold, I love the sinuous lines that overlap each other to create the shield-shaped central section of the pendant.

Set to the centre with an oval white opal and matched by a small white opal set below it. The central opal has green, blue and red flashes as you move it around, whilst the smaller opal has the same colours but is more fiery with reds. To either side of the round opal is set a small creamy white natural pearl. Adding to the crisp, light design overall. A particularly ethereal piece of work that exudes lightness in both the structure and the stones.

In pleasing order, the pendant measures approx 3cm by 3.2cm. The wearable length of the chain is approx 49.5cm (approx 19.5 inches). Tested as 9ct gold, there are no hallmarks only a hand-etched serial number by the jeweller who created her, visible with a loupe.

I shall send in a new gift box, as the box in the images is for display only. Complimentary tracked and signed post is included. Thank you. Ref: ctt
