AKARI - Two-Toned, Japanese Damascene Necklace

Opposites attract! STUNNING (and with more detail than the photos can show) this vintage 1930's *Damascene, with it's lovely, delicate Floral design and striking color combination of gold and silver on black is...Art in miniature! It is perfection. The 1 1/4" large-sized pendant hangs from a U-shaped setting with a vintage Baroque Pearl accent. The 17" mixed link chain features over-sized gold ovals and thick black rope chain (thick as a pencil) with a lobster clasp closure and 3" extension (fits 17" to 19").

*Damascene is the art of hand etching design into darkly oxidized metal then applying 18K or 24K gold and/or silver foil to create intricate patterns. The result is striking and beautiful. The style’s English name was likely inspired by its resemblance to rich tapestry patterns found in damask silk.
