Arts & Crafts Sterling Gilt Rose Quartz Teardrop Festoon Necklace
A beautiful rose quartz necklace from the Arts & Crafts (ca1900s) era! Crafted in gilded sterling silver, this decorative piece is comprised of varying sized round and teardrop shaped links that come together to form an elegant festoon style necklace. Strands of fine chain are draped in between each round link, and clover and bow shaped sterling links are set along the chain. All of the rose quartz stones have gorgeous coloring, with rich marbled pink hues and natural internal inclusions which give the stones a pearlescent appearance. At the back of the necklace are two fine strands of chain that meet at a secure spring clasp. This naturally beautiful necklace drapes elegantly along the neckline when worn, and is a wonderful example of Arts & Crafts era jewelry!
Measurements: The necklace measures approximately 16" in total length with the center links having a 4" drop. The largest rose quartz link measures a little more than 1" in diameter, the smallest measures a little less than 1/2" in diameter and the teardrop link measures approximately 1 1/2" long.
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling gilt setting. All of the rose quartz links are intact and the clasp fastens securely and is in good working condition.
