A wonderful turquoise chain from the Art Nouveau (ca1900s) era! This relatively long chain necklace is comprised of sections of 14kt yellow gold chain which connect between turquoise cabochon links. The bezel set natural turquoise displays wonderful shades of blue and green, lightly speckled with brown mineral veins creating a rich marbled appearance, pairing perfectly next to the rich yellow gold. The necklace is long enough to slip comfortably on and off overhead, however, a clasp provides the option to double its length or wear with a complementary necklace enhancer. The chain fastens at a gold spring clasp stamped with a "585" purity mark. A very versatile piece, this wonderful chain is perfect for everyday wear, and would delight any turquoise lover!
Measurements: The entire length of the chain measures approximately 42.5" long. The turquoise links measure about 3/8" long, 1/2" wide, and slightly less than 1/4" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the yellow gold chain. The turquoise links are intact and securely set and the spring clasp is secure and in good working condition.
