Out of stock


An unusual and truly joyful antique festoon necklace, which is clearly handcrafted. The attention to detail is astonishing. Each of these pear shaped drops has been hand made to resemble emeralds I believe. A fabulous colour to each and they are slightly different in their swirls and interest within the stones. Each has a top section which includes superb filigree work with tiny, fine rope work design silver. An absolute joy to inspect with a loupe, as you can see all of the little weaving and attaching that was done by hand. Incredible!

I love this colour as green is often more difficult to find in this type of festoon necklace. I would describe this green as a sea green and is not as dark as it seemed to come across in several of the images. Large round link and a circular bolt fastener, stamped STERLING.

The drop section measures approx 4cm and the length of the chain is approx 41cm (16 inches). I will send by Special Delivery within the UK or else Int’l tracked and signed overseas. Thank you!
