Product Description

This beautiful piece is in very good condition and features an open work filigree design set with cut and cabochon gemstones. The reddish brown stones are most likely Garnets and the green most likely Beryl.

Every now again we find a piece of jewellery that really amazes us. This is one such piece. The detail and intricacies of this necklace are really fine and quite beautiful.

There are two type of linking segments each set with bright cut green gemstones. There is a central drop which is attached to a bale dropping from a hinge to the back of the middle segment. It is asymmetrical and set with a green cabochon and three bright but red gem stones. I have tested the stones on a Mizar diamond tester and all register  slightly up the scale. They are not glass.

There are several marks to this piece. To the pendant drop is the silver purity of 800 and the signature of the maker, an entwined AG. The clasp to the back is also marked with AG and then 830 silver purity. The use of these two silver purities makes it a matter of elimination as to where the piece was made. According to my research the only country that uses both 830 and 800 silver is Portugal.

 

The necklace closes with  a push in box clasp which works well. I can see one larger green gem stone in the link second back from the clasp is chipped. There is no other damage.

 

The larger segments are 20mm long and the smaller ones 10mm long. The entire necklace measures 430mm in length. The central drop pendant is 40mm x 20mm.
