SOLD--Vintage Erte Aventurine Emerald and Rock Crystal Necklace 14k c. 1979
THIS PIECE HAS BEEN SOLD.
This spectacular necklace was made by Circle Fine Art Jewelry in 1979 for a collection designed by the one and only Erte when he was in his mid-eighties! Based on his "Wings of Victory" (possibly my all-time Erte fave) from 1919 Harper's Bazaar. HIgh relief carved and frosted rock crystal quartz face with a rock crystal background, headdress frame and chain in 14k yellow gold studded with natural emeralds. The rock crystal face often reads as a very light green but it is actually colorless. This is one of 250 and comes signed with paperwork as shown.
Wearable length 16" with an additional 3.75" drop. Plaque measures 1.5 x 1.5".
Signed "Erte" on front, stamped "CFA 14k 182/250".
Contains six natural round cut emeralds.
In great condition with little to no wear.
