Details of Style & or Stones(s):
This necklace is a wonderful and excellent example of the art deco jewelry that was worn so many years ago. This beautiful necklace features some of the finest gold work and stones i've seen in a long time. The center stone is a beautiful light to medium purple natural Sapphire. The sapphire is substantial in size and set in Deco esque prongs beautifully. Surrounding the Sapphire are petit point hand cut Persian Turquoise stones. These two stones are by far two of the most expensive imported stones during the Deco Era, even rivaling Diamonds! All stones are in beautiful shape with no nicks or discoloring what so ever. The gold work is beyond exceptional, however i wouldn't expect anything less in a custom made piece like this. The gold work features a beautiful filigree center portion thatmountsthe Purple Sapphire with a 4 point Persian Turquoise design around the Sapphire. Beautiful Romanesque Arch type designs on the outside of the pendant. The pendant can also be worn as a brooch or a pin as it includes a pin backing. This beautiful necklace was almost surely hand crafted for a richandwealthy lady of the Deco period. The necklace would of been custom made according to her specifications upon the style of the period. Beautiful and truly magnificent!
This is a great necklace that is very old and in great condition.This is not a reproduction but a true antique art deco necklace that has a timeless, classic design.
Art Deco/Victorian jewelry is some of the rarest jewelry to find and some of the most sought after jewelry! You see, most people during this early age could not afford to purchase precious metal jewelry such as this. Due to the depression or other reasons. That being the case it was almost always custom ordered by a well to do customer and was hand made by the order. Because of the selective amounts made during this time, not much has survived the years of being broken, melted, and just simply lost with time. To find a necklace like this and buy it in an antique shop would cost a pretty penny. This is the place to find a necklace like this at a fair price with a .99 cent starting price. Snatch this necklace up as it is a true rarity and has proven its self with flying colors! There is no way in heck are you ever going to find a necklace like this again!

About Us:We are two young professionals "Alexis" & "Chris". We met in a photography class in college. We both go to college and sell New, Vintage, & Antique jewelry on as a full time job. We are not your typical college aged kids, we know the value of a dollar and what customer service truly means, we will always go out of our way to make our customers as happy as possible. We started out in the jewelry business knowing individuals who were in the smelting business. As we watched these smelters melting new, vintage, & antique 100+ year old jewelry for the metal value, we cringed!! We thought, there must be a way to save this special and once in a lifetime type of jewelry instead of melting these wonderful items.Well then the bright idea of selling these beautiful items smacked us in the face!We started buying small items such as rings, bracelets and necklaces from these smelters and selling these items to wonderful people who would appreciate them and cherish them for a lifetime!
After starting out small time, we started to go to Antique shops, estate sales, estate buy outs, smelters, sales, coin shows, or just about anywhere possible we could get our hands on these wonderful and beautiful jewelry items! We started to set up at trade shows and other events to sell to people, we love the interaction with people! To work more with our school schedule we eventually phased out the trade show atmosphere and started selling jewelry on ! I'm glad we did, you can get just as much interaction with people over the internet as you can face to face. We love all of our customers and love the quick messages anybody likes to send our way! After starting to sell jewelry on we started our business called Aumia Gold & Silver Jewelry And Collectibles LLC, "Aumia" Is Golden Lady in Latin. We try to offer a variety of jewelry from Rings, Necklaces, Pendants, Brooch's, Gold & Silver. We also offer Native American Jewelry, Art Deco Jewelry, Victorian Jewelry, Antique Chinese Jewelry and much much more! We try to post a mix of each variety every day Mon-Fri.
We found our niche! The success on has made this into our full time job. Because of our great loyal customers and new ones every day you are helping us provide an education in Genetics, Biology and soon to be business. We also donate large amounts of money to Rotary. We both heavily believe in helping others and creating wonderful new opportunities internationally and domestically. Aumia has provided us our future and love towards our passion. We can’t see ourselves doing anything else. It is something new every day. I combine my hobby of photography, and meeting new people. We treat people with theutmostrespect and customer service is our main priority. There are always goofy stories about us but too much for an listing. We hope we have given you some insight to who we are and our passion for this industry. Check our page for more fun information!
