Description

DATE: Arts & Crafts, c.1910

This superb Arts & Crafts necklace dates from circa 1910, and has been set with eight blue moonstones and six synthetic rubies - the latter being very typical in such pieces from the early 20th Century. It's modelled in 9k rose gold, and the stones rest in millegrain collet settings; complete with an unusual moonstone-set bail that's attached to a 16 inch chain.

The Arts and Crafts movement began in Britain and flourished in Europe and North America between around 1880 and 1920. It was characterised by traditional craftsmanship using simple elements of design, and has been seen as a reaction against machinery and factory production.
