Art Nouveau Black Opal Necklace / Two Bracelets
ABOUT THIS JEWELRY
Reminiscent of the rare and highly distinctive creations by Tiffany and Marcus & Co. Fourteen miniature galaxies--also known as opals--each bursting with its own fireworks display of blazing color, are held by textured swirl settings, exquisitely hand engraved on the reverse, and connected by die-struck openwork scroll links. A mesmerizing cabochon teardrop opal, adorned above by a square opal set on the bias, dangles below. And the magic continues. This breathtaking jewel converts into two bracelets and, on the days when you're feeling a little less fancy, you can remove the drop. Utterly enchanting and extraordinary! Hand fabricated in 18K gold - circa 1900. The necklace measures 15 1/2 inches and each bracelet section is 7 5/8 inches. Center drop measures 2 inches.
