Here is a very attractive and very beautiful antique amethyst and pearl necklace from the Art Nouveau period and dates from well over 110 year ago yet still manages to retain a modern and contemporary look and feel about it.
Hand made in 9ct gold around 1895, this delightful Art Nouveau necklace is set with 5 amethysts and highlighted with 10 very sweet seed pearls.
The design is very typical of the work being made by jewellers of the Art Nouveau era, and has a wonderful flowing design leading down to the two amethysts at the bottom of different lengths.
Laid out flat this necklace measures 40cm from end to end, and from one amethyst to the other 6.2cm across and this necklace sits so well on the neckline.
The style of this Art Nouveau necklace is so wonderful and flowing in it design and is practical to wear all the time and dress up for those special occasions.
Antique jewellery is so individual thanks in part to the designs as well as each piece being made by hand and not massed produced like many modern pieces today where they are cast in infinite numbers, which adds so much appeal to owning and wearing a genuine antique piece.
This is a very attractive example of an Art Nouveau era amethyst and pearl necklace in a style that has never gone out of fashion and will always look good and always be admired.
