Early Victorian French Sterling Green Foil Back Crystal Link Necklace 16.25"
An absolutely stunning foil back crystal necklace from the Early Victorian (ca1850) era! French in origin, this sterling silver piece is comprised of 30 faceted green crystal links which come together to form a vivid collar necklace. The oval-shaped crystals are bezel set and foil backed, exhibiting an incredible vibrant green color. The facets catch the light beautifully with every movement. The surface of the silver displays a natural darkened patina. The necklace fastens with a secure barrel clasp at the back and features two French touch marks, including the profile of Mercury. A stunning statement piece, it drapes beautifully at the neckline and would look spectacular worn day or night!

Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver setting. All of the crystals are intact and securely set. The barrel clasp is secure and in good working order.
