Delicate and delicate, yet beautifully detailed and wonderfully preserved: This early 20th century necklace is a piece that is just waiting to be worn by a beautiful new wearer. The necklace consists of an elongated, three-part pendant that is firmly attached to a fine silver chain. The design initially consists of a diamond rose set in a square square setting. A delicate bar with two further diamonds leads to a drop-shaped pearl in a floral setting set with more diamonds. It looks as if the pendant represents a flower that sprouts from the lower pearl to bloom in shimmering light. The pearl at the bottom of the pendant is a so-called "Antillean pearl". This term was used in the jewelry trade at the turn of the century to describe pearls that were not actually pearls at all, but so-called blisters, i.e. sections of mother-of-pearl cut from the shell, but which have the lustre and shine of real pearls. The always irregular shape of these Antillean pearls, which are probably named after their original location in the Caribbean, was particularly popular with Art Nouveau jewelry designers, with their preference for all things irregular and asymmetrical. However, this type of pearl was also used in classically inspired pieces of jewelry such as this elegant necklace, where it continues to impress to this day.
