Antique Aqua Blue Enameled Necklace, Silver and Marcasite

     I always keep an extra eye out for lovely silver and marcasite jewelry. There was a fantastic surge of these pieces made in the 1920s, and while they are still being made today, the ones made in the 20s have a handcrafted quality and feel that the newer ones are lacking.  Here is the perfect example of a fantastic piece from the 20s.  

     Completely handcrafted in 800 silver, this beautiful necklace features a sky blue enamel plaque with engraving behind it to give it extra depth and interest. Set into the enamel bit is a floral motif set with sparkling marcasite and surrounding this is a very detailed frame with w heavy nod to the Art Nouveau style that was just about coming to an end when this necklace was made. It is marked on the back with '800' and another mark that is hard to make out, maybe a duck or bird?  The drop measures 2 1/8 inches long (54.2 mm) from top to bottom and it's just shy of 1 inch (24 mm) across at the widest point.  The chain is 16 inches long.  

     This is a truly lovely example of handcrafted early marcasite jewelry, symbolic of the burgeoning middle class of the early decades of the 20th Century.
