- Quantity Available: 1
A magnificent 14K yellow gold modernist cuff necklace set with approximately 28 carats of various colorful gemstones. The matte finish of the gold surface contrasts beautifully with the various gemstoneschosen not only for their color, but also for their brilliance. The stones, each cut differently, include (L-R) cabochon-cut emerald, oval mixed-cut citrine, rectangular-cut morganite, round mixed-cut aquamarine, emerald-cut amethyst, oval-cut iolite, and pear-cut rubellite. The necklace is entirely hand-hammered from gold sheets. The hammer marks are still visible on the reverse. The collets rise dramatically above the surface of the necklace, thus projecting the gemstones forward. The back is indistinctly signed. The necklace looks very much like the work of noted Welsh goldsmith Sara Amos, who now works in South Carolina. Origin: America, ca. 1960. Condition: the amethyst and morganite each have a flake on the back which probably happened during the making, but this is not noticeable when being worn; otherwise excellent condition; all original. Size: interior, 4-1/2 x 4; width, 1 at front; back opening, 2-1/2 (could be expanded by professionally cutting down the back edges). Weight: 56.0 grams. Approximate Total Gemstone Weight: emerald, .85 carat; citrine, 4.7 carats; morganite, 5.88 carats; aquamarine, 7.2 carats; amethyst, 5.58 carats; iolite, 1.88 carats; rubellite, 1.87 carats.
