ABOUT:
This one is so me! I love floral and leaf jewelry. I love French jewelry. I love the Art Nouveau movement. This piece is all three of those.

Delicious glowing gold work with figural design of roses and leaves - the patina is just amazing. This antique necklace / chain is a French Art Nouveau piece from the Belle Epoque period. The chain links lead to the three roses which are tied with a bow. Small pearl accents and and two single rose elements add additional elegant detail to the chain.

Beautiful rich antique patina to the 18k gold with French hallmarks on the loop of the clasp and back of the pendant indicating all parts are solid 18k gold. Wonderful glow and amazing figural detail with a very legible and striking design.

MEASUREMENTS:
The chain is about 17 inches in length. The piece weighs 10.4 grams with the rose element being particularly sturdy with a wonderful hand feel. The floral element is 23mm wide by 35mm tall.

IMPORTANT CONDITION NOTES:

The piece is in very nice condition - there is one hole / puncture to the bottom center deep inside the rose but which may have occurred when it was stamped or may actually be intentional. I noticed while styling it the two smaller roses can flip sometimes but this is not a defect, it is just how it was made. When resting on the decollete, it should stay put but may need an occasional flip. The gold work is stunning.

Please note that all my pieces are pre-owned and in estate condition. They will have patina, surface wear, a few small nicks. These pieces may also have evidence of a sizing, some build up around the stones and / or inclusions seen under magnification, typical for antique pieces. I have mentioned any noticeable issues above and they are all still wearable and eager to be loved and accepted for many years to come, (the preservation of antique jewelry, even those with signs of their age and history, is important to me. : )
But - Please note due to age, this piece is not in mint condition. Pictures also serve as part of the description and condition report so please utilize the zoom feature which will magnify any wear significantly more than what is visible to the eye while wearing : )

Thanks so much for looking at my items!
