Art Nouveau Egyptian Revival Amber Opal Gold Necklace

About

During the 19th century, the discoveries of ancient archaeological finds influenced and brought on what is referred to as "archaeological revival jewelry," or "Egyptian revival jewelry." The initial Egyptian Revival period flourished from the 1820s and was inspired by ancient Egyptian imagery, such as the scarab beetle, sphinxes, pharaohs, and hieroglyphics. An exquisite Egyptian Revival necklace from the Arts Nouveau (ca1900) era! This gorgeous piece is made of 14kt yellow gold and is comprised of beautiful amber and opal cabochons. There are 6 amber stones altogether, each held within an ornate gold bezel setting and all emitting a rich, warm, translucent color with a few flecks of natural inclusions. The smaller opal stones are delicately carved scarab beetles and have a fabulous array of iridescent colors in hues of yellow, green, blue, purple, and pink. The center of the piece has a cross-like shape and three links dangle below, each with amber and opal cabochons in differing sizes. The center link connects to two amber cabochons, which attach to a gold box chain which hooks into the top of one amber stones at the front of the piece. The back of the piece is signed "Claxton" and is stamped "S.F. CAL." This outstanding necklace serves as a wonderful example of both the Art Nouveau and Egyptian Revival eras. It has a gorgeous design and drapes beautifully when worn. It would make a very special addition to any jewelry collection! Measurements: The necklace measures 16" long. The centerpiece hangs 3 3/8" long from top to bottom.
