Description


This fine and impressive antique necklace has been crafted in 15 ct yellow gold.


The feature pierced decorated, Art Nouveau style drop is ornamented with a collet set cabochon cut opal to the centre, flanked with horizontal pale ornamentation and plain ball designs to the upper portion.


An independently collet set opal terminal suspends from the lower border of the design.


The frame to the upper portion of the necklace is comprised of five articulated segments, each articulated via integrated ring loops.


The central segment is ornamented with further pierced decoration, reflecting the Art Nouveau manner, flanked with two panels featuring further oval cabochon cut opals, collet set.


The feature setting suspends via a yellow gold fancy chain, composed of alternating bar and four trace links.


The necklace is hallmarked with the maker's mark for Murrle Bennett & Co (MBCo)* and mark for 15 ct gold (15ct)


This impressive antique Art Nouveau necklace is supplied with an independent gemstone grading report card.


* The jewellery manufacturers Ernst Mürrle and J.B Bennett operated as Siegele & Bennett from 1884 advertising themselves as 'manufacturers and importers of British and Foreign jewellery'; importing pieces from Pforsheim as this was Murrle's origin. In 1896 they administered Murrle Bennet & Co until 1914 when the firm was purchased and continued trade in London under the name White Redgrove & Whyte. Murrle Bennett is widely known for their production of Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts style jewellery; they bear connections with renowned craftsmen such as Liberty & Co, Archibald Knox and Theodore Fahrner.


Images do not always reflect the true colour and brilliance of gemstones and diamonds. The video however provides a truer representation of the actual colour and showcases each stone.
