Arts & Crafts Plique-à-Jour Pendant Necklace*

Item Description

A very fine and distinctive Continental Arts & Crafts silver gilt pendant necklace set with pink tourmalines, aquamarines, sapphire and a large blister pearl in the centre of a zig-zag design plique-à-jour plaque.

The pearl is set at the top of the enamelled zig-zag to a flat back collet with filigree claws, and twisted wire bars.  A pair of cabochon pink tourmalines is set on the lower edge of the plaque, beneath which is suspended the cushion shaped sapphire, surrounded with intricate wirework. Below this hang the three aquamarine drops.  

On the original chain with its bolt ring clasp and in good conditon, with light wear to the gilding and just a little of the enamel deficient in the smallest areas.

Total length from the top of the pearl to the bottom of the longest drop is 50mm.

Provenance:  Believed to have been the property of a teacher at Roedean School who, at the time, was very involved in the Arts & Crafts movement.
