This lovely necklace is in very good condition.

The ornate piece features 5 decorative links to the centre studded in sparkling marcasites in an Art Deco design. Each is joined by a finely tooled link which allows the segments to move with the wearer. The ends of the outer segments are marked Silver and HSN for the maker. This piece would be European in origin.

The marcasite section is simply beautiful with finely tooled and beaded edges and the marcasites themselves have been bead set. This means the stones are set with tiny pieces of silver lifted up and over the stone (like a claw) to hold them in place.

This was a very time consuming process and cannot be compared with modern glued in marcasite.

The chain is a fine flat link style and secures with a bolt ring style clasp.

There is no damage to the piece and no repairs or missing stones.

The necklace measures 460mm long and the marcasite section measures 110mm between the points and is 55mm deep.
