Art Deco Onyx and Marcasite Necklace Sterling, German c. 1930
Every time I see this necklace in the case at the store, in my mind I think, "The Black Heart"--this is my secret name that I've given this piece. It is beautiful and dramatic, with a dark sparkle--it reminds me of something Cersei in Game of Thrones would wear! Made in the 1930's, this necklace features a faceted onyx in an ornate frame of marcasites set in sterling silver, with a maracasite studded chain. And it was made in Germany, as of course all of the superb marcasite pieces from this period were! Do you need to wield some dark, queenly power? Here's your necklace your majesty!
Measures 18" with an additiona 2 1/8" drop. Stamped for sterling and Germany on the pendant. Box clasp. All marcasites present, onyx in great condition.
