Russian Art Nouveau Demantoid, Synthetic Ruby and Pearl Lavaliere
ABOUT THIS NECKLACE
From pre-Soviet Russia with love. This fanciful and lightly crafted lavaliere pendant pops with colorful flowers--one of them inverted and dangling--bejeweled with vivid pinkish-red synthetic* rubies and bright lime green demantoid garnets. A single cream-colored natural pearl adds a touch of luster. A rare and ravishing collectible jewel. Circa 1900. *Original to the period and piece. Hand fabricated in 14K yellow and rosy-yellow gold. Chain measures 15 inches.
