Arts & Crafts Sapphire Pearl Gold Necklace by Artificers' Guild

Sapphires have been attributed to royalty since the beginning of written history. The color and rarity of the stone signified power and wealth. During the Middle Ages, sapphires were thought to be the divine stone, to shield the wearer from harm and disease. The Edwardian era marked a time of luxury and indulgence. Sapphire motifs with pearl accents, like this necklace, were fashionable.

This breathtaking antique Arts and Crafts sapphire and pearl gold necklace was made in England, around 1910. I feel confident in attributing this necklace to The Artificers’ Guild, which was founded in 1901. It was one of the few Arts & Crafts inspired businesses in England to find commercial success. This piece features meandering golden tree branches with 14 white lustrous pearls for leaves; each pearl measures 2.5 mm in diameter. It’s an undulating design with three sapphires that gradate from darkest to lightest as they flow from the top to the bottom, and total a weight of 3.1 carats. The main feature measures 64 x 52 mm. This necklace weighs 12.2 grams and is 22 inches in length, including the drop. It is hallmarked with the gold purity mark, ‘15ct’, signifying it was made in 15 karat gold.

This nature-inspired necklace curves smoothly about and would be a positively perfect gift, even for yourself.
