Vintage Double Link Chain Fringe Necklace
with Akoya Pearls, in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A beautiful, lay-flat, collar-style necklace, modeled in 14k yellow gold, whose fancy double-link chain supports a fringe of fifty-five, lustrous, white Akoya pearls. These pearls are seated in shallow, high-polished cups that drop from the necklace's lacy chain; they graduate subtly, becoming smaller toward the back. This is an unusual necklace, with an almost layered look— it is striking in wear! We love the soft shine of the nacreous pearls, paired with the "harder" (and very slinky) gold chain. Construction is very fine: the backside of the necklace is a beautiful as the front. This is marked W Germany, 14k, and with a scribed-in design number: 3906YA. It closes with a sturdy spring ring clasp.
Total length measures approx 16.5"; pearls measure approx 6.2 - 4.4 mm; chain width is approx 3.5 mm; weight is approx 27.2 grams.
This is hallmarked on the clasp. The design number is scratched lightly into the backside of one of the pearl cups. The "W" in W Germany fell off the narrow clasp side when the hallmark was applied.
