Art Deco Sterling Marcasite & Onyx Lavaliere Necklace
A beautiful circa 1930s lavaliere that features detailed cast links and a dramatic double pendant. The side segments and links have a floral motif and are accented by marcasites. The lower pendant however, simply sparkles with 41 of them! The central squared onyx is in wonderful shape and is chip and scratch free. All of the marcasites are present and appear to be original to this beauty. Measures 16 1/2" end to end. Double pendant measures 2 1/2" long x 7/8" at the widest point. Marked on the reverse and on the spring ring clasp Sterling. Weighs 19.4 grams. In very nice vintage condition, displaying age appropriate wear and patina, but free of any damage that I could find.
