An antique Arts and Crafts necklace, circa 1910, featuring beautifully delicate shades of glittering lemon-yellow citrine set in sterling silver; two tear-drop shaped pendants hang from a central stone faceted for maximum sparkle. This particular configuration is known as a "negligee necklace" or "negligee drop", a long necklace terminating in drops or tassels of irregular length, and was a design that well-suited the necklines and delicate dressmaker details of the Edwardian era. Elegantly simple; perfect for the girl who likes to make a subtle statement and appreciates a minimalist aesthetic. The gemstone also makes it a wonderful choice as a love token gift; for centuries citrine has been used as a talisman for happiness, joy and to ensure smooth communication in relationships. A positive energy stone, it's believed to encourage success both financially and emotionally. The chain gives the piece an approximately 16" necklace length to the drop and measuring an 1 7/8" from top of the main stone to bottom of the lowest hanging pendant. The main citrine measures approximately 12.00 mm by 11.88 mm in the bezel, the stones in the pendants measure approximately 13.36 mm long and 12.06 mm long in the bezels. In excellent condition with some light wear to the stones and a gentle antique patina. Not marked for silver content but acid tests to sterling. The original bolt ring clasp was somewhat cranky so we've replaced it with a contemporary sterling spring ring for security sake. ❃More Necklaces and Pendants: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheEdenCollective?section_id=13939717&ref=shopsection_leftnav_3 ❃We are happy to offer layaway.
