A beautiful necklace set with over 50 carats of oval shaped faceted natural gemstones including Amethyst, Citrine, Peridot, Topaz and Garnet all set in 18kt gold chambers, with in a collet chain setting and a small jump ring between each.
The necklace hallmarked 18ct London ‘import’ and with an Italian makers mark. It is not possible to know the date that the necklace was made but these colours were adopted by the Suffragettes and by those who supported the movement and became the symbolic colours of the cause to gain women the Vote across Europe and it is possible that the necklace is early 20th century but may equally be a little later than this.
This is a stunningly beautiful necklace, a good weight to it and a good length – it looks wonderful when worn. The stones with lots of fire and bright reflection in the gemstones and the quality of the settings and chain are really superb.
In excellent original condition.
