Art Nouveau 14kt Moonstone Festoon Necklace
A stunning moonstone necklace from the Art Nouveau (ca1900) era! This gorgeous necklace is comprised of a multitude of moonstone links, which hang in a festoon style from a 14kt gold chain. Included in the design are a combination of round and oval shaped cabochons that graduate slightly in size. Each stone is set in an open backed bezel, allowing the light to pass through. The alluring moonstones are very clear and emit iridescent flashes of pale blue. A secure barrel catch fastens the gold chain in the back. When worn, the necklace drapes beautifully at the neckline, resting along the collarbone. Both elegant and stylish, it would look perfect worn on special occasions!
Measurements: The necklace chain measures approximately 18" long. The moonstone links range in size, the largest measuring approximately 1/2" and the smallest measuring 1/8". The strands of festoon links hang 1 1/4" long.
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting, and all of the moonstones are intact. The barrel clasp is secure and in good working condition.
