Antique European Silver and Purple Plique-a-jour Necklace Choker Length

Her irises were made of mint green and baby blue. But he had to look to see it. Just as he had to look to spot the anchor tattoo on the back of her neck that her long brown hair usually covered. Her southern accent faded over the years since she’d moved to the city but every once in a while someone would ask, “What?” just to catch her soft inflections again. She appreciated the hidden details. She always made you look twice. And when she wore this necklace, at second glance, most people could hardly look away. 

This stunning plique-a-jour enamel necklace was hand crafted in silver. It is choker length at 15 inches and weighs 24.6 grams. It has been professionally acid tested. It measures 95 mm top to bottom in the front, with a depth of 4 mm. This is a unique piece as it makes use of the plique-a-jour enamel style in which the enamel is applied between the metal setting, not on, so light can shine brightly through. ‘Plique-a-Jour’ means ‘Light of Day’ in French. This darling necklace boasts layers of beautiful artistry with its many drops and swirls of silver. The center marquis adds even more intricate audacity to this timeless necklace. This stunning necklace is unmarked, I purchased it in Amsterdam and suspect it’s European in origin and dates to about 1900. 

I find that class comes in all shapes and sizes, but confidence, comes in bold strikes, as does this breathtaking necklace.
