Vintage Art Deco Sterling Silver Enamel Geometric Pendant Necklace
Curated Jewels for the Vintage Collector. Royal blue and black enamel create a striking geometric pattern in this necklace from the Art Deco period. The overall shape of the pendant furthers the bold geometric look, calling to mind the structure of an Art Deco skyscraper built around this time. In the center of the design is a silver symbol: a crown atop a cross. Usually, this symbol signified victory over death, referring to Christs resurrection and promise to his followers. The necklace is in excellent condition. Excellent , there are no chips to the enamel and the pendant is fresh looking. The chain has a couple of misshapen links but it is minimal and the chain is original to the pendant. 17 chain, the pendant is 1 1/2. There are several different styles of enameling: guilloche (colored, transparent enamel over a metal surface with geometric grooves), champlevé (enamel fills etchings or depressions in a metal surface), plique a jour (translucent enamel fitted into open-back metal cells) and more. What makes antique or vintage enamel pieces collectible is the condition of the enamel workis it distinct and vibrant? Is it free from chips? Other characteristics like an elaborate pattern, unique depiction, or the use of multiple colors can add more value to an enamel piece. Uncommon antique and vintage pieces are often highly collectable because you are not likely to find another one. While some uncommon pieces have garnered a cult following, others are so uncommon that they do not have a large fanbase. The latter type may not be considered collectables, but they are lovely, almost one-of-a-kind finds. _gsrx_vers_859 GS 7.0.21 (859).
