Art Deco 14kt Rock Quartz & Diamond Filigree Necklace
A stunning rock quartz crystal necklace from the Art Deco (ca1920) era! Set in 14kt white gold, this beautiful piece is comprised of a large rock quartz crystal plaque with a single diamond set in the center. The diamond rests within a box setting that is riveted into the center of the plaque, and the crystal has a carved design on the back, which shows through to the front as a beautiful starburst. The ornate framework is beautifully detailed with very fine filigree wirework, and a floral motif that resembles swirled vines, flowers and leaves curling around the edges of the border. The craftsmanship is spectacular and compliments the pendant perfectly. Completing the design is a filigree bail, which is marked "14K". The delicate chain fastens with a spring ring clasp in the back. It looks beautiful when worn and would make a gorgeous addition to any collection!
Measurements: The chain measures 17.5" in total length. The pendant hangs 1 1/2" in total length (including the bail at the top), measures 3/4" wide, and 1/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the piece is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the white gold setting or filigree wirework. The rock quartz crystal and diamond are intact and securely set. The spring ring clasp fastens securely and is in good working condition.
