NIKO - Japanese Damascene, Statement Necklace

NIKO - Japanese Damascene, Statement Necklace

STUNNING (and with more detail than the photos can show) this vintage *Damascene, with it's charming subject of a 'Bird on a Branch' design, striking color combination of gold and silver on black and, intricate scalloped edge...is...Art in miniature! It is perfection. The over-sized (almost 2") pendant hangs from a 17" chunky round chain-maille (thick as your finger) in matte satin gold with a lobster clasp closure and 3" extension (fits 17" to 20"). Bold sized elegance in a one-of-a-kind Statement Necklace.

*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.
