This English necklace circa 1900, is finely worked in silver, gold and enamel. There is a very large central cabachon moonstone surrounded with leaves of gold and enamel. A teardrop shaped moonstone with a gold bezel finishes the bottom of the pendant. There are six faceted garnets, the larger of which are set in beautiful galleries and articulate freely. The central moonstone is closed back and is very large, measuring 1 1/4 inches long x 1/2 inches wide. It is foiled back to reflect light and has a very slight natural inclusion which can be seen in the photos. The pendant measures 2 3/4 inches long and is connected by a section of silver chain which lengthens the pendant by an inch. The neck chain itself measures 21 inches. There are no maker's marks which is not unusual for Arts and Crafts jewelry, and has been tested for silver and gold content. It is dramatically beautiful, well proportioned and has a subtle blend of color. The condition is excellent.
