Art Deco German Sterling Rock Quartz Crystal & Marcasite Necklace
A beautiful German rock quartz crystal necklace from the Art Deco (ca1930) era! This elegant design is crafted in sterling silver and features a decorative centerpiece that hangs from an attached chain. The central pendant features a panel of pyramidal rock quartz crystal studs, which are set in silver and separated by sparkling marcasite stones. Dangling freely below are three festoon style strands. Each is lined with a complimentary marcasite design, and features a carved rock crystal teardrop at the base. The unique clasp design allows the silver chain to fasten at the center, where a push clasp is disguised within the centerpiece. Stamped on the back of the pendant is "STERLING GERMANY." This gorgeous necklace has a very beautiful and feminine design that could be worn day or night. It would make a perfect vintage addition to any collection!
