The Edwardian era of the early 1900’s was one era that started to separate itself from the earlier Victorian era, and although lasting for only a decade, produced some very elegant and regal jewellery such as this delightful antique enamel and pearl necklace.
Dating from the early 1900’s, this wonderful antique necklace is made made in silver with the most elegant blue enamel.
The enamel links are separated by 4 pearls and then draping so elegantly are five more enamel bars each set with five more pearls.
The way these lower pearls are set is amazing with each being made set into their own supporting “cage” with its own fine detail.
It is this fine attention to detail that really makes antique necklaces so beautiful and shows the high level of quality that the jeweller went to in creating this necklace well over 100 years ago.
Laid out flat, from end to end the necklace measures 39.5cm in length and from the end of one enamel bar where the first pearl is to the other end measures 12.2cm in length and from the centre drop pearl to where it is attached measures 1.9cm.
This antique necklace sits so well on the neck and with the enamel and pearls makes it so elegant and refined and a charming example of an antique necklace that can so easily be worn all the time.
