From my own personal collection, comes a gorgeous, authentic Russian, solid 14 karat rose and green gold, Demantoid and Ruby necklace. The necklace has a delicate garland style and was made in Moscow, Russia, between 1908 and 1917. The necklace had an original length of 21 1/4 inches but has been shortened to the current 17 inches long with a 1 5/8th inch drop for a total length of 19 5/8th inches. I still have the remaining chain which will come with the piece in case one wishes to add it back on.
In addition to shortening the chain, a gold jump ring was added so that the length could be adjusted if desired. The width of the centerpiece is 3 1/2 inches across and the drop is about 1 5/8th of an inch. The necklace weighs 12.3 grams without the added chain and is fully hallmarked with 56 zolotnik Imperial gold standard with the Moscow assay symbol and maker's initials on the frame and on the chain clasp. The 3 largest demantoids on the center drop, weigh approximately 0.32 carats, 0.31 carats and 0.26 carats.
There is an estimated total weight of 2.00 carats. The demantoids are a nice saturated green and are well matched which is rare. The stones are old and may not be perfect, which is to be expected of a piece that is 100+ years old. I do not know if the rubies are natural or synthetic but they are original to the piece as far as I know.
The necklace is in very good, ready to wear, condition. Please view all the pictures as part of the description and please note that colors may vary from monitor to monitor.
