The Arts and Crafts movement resulted in a style of jewellery that although dating from the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s is quite different to that of Art Nouveau jewellery as well as late Victorian and early Edwardian jewellery.
Arts and Crafts jewellery is often characterised by a somewhat free from and naturalistic style however still quite separate to that of Art Nouveau jewellery of the same time. It is easy to see the flowing design in this particular Arts and Crafts necklace, not only from its form, but also from the natural pearls used as well as the wire work surrounding each of the six natural pearls.
Made in 9ct rose gold, the oval section of the pendant measures 20mm wide by 32.4 or 45mm from the top of the oval section to the bottom of the lowest pearl. Sitting on a 47cm necklace allows this charming necklace to sit just at the right length on the neckline and always get the attention and admiration it rightly deserves.
This is a wonderful antique necklace that has a look all of its own and can still easily be worn on a daily basis with other antique jewellery as well as modern contemporary pieces and always fit right in.
