A striking vintage malachite fringe necklace rendered in almost pure silver, 980 parts to 1000 (sterling is 925 to 1000).
Possibly South American in origin and finely handcrafted the necklace features 73 cabochons of malachite that are a glowing emerald green and liberally mottled in jet black which, creates a dramatic contrast to the bright white high grade silver. The elegant slender capsule shaped links are articulated so the necklace falls perfectly flat.
Beautiful quality with a good weight, the necklace is collar length and it fastens with an oval box clasp that has a safety catch. It is in spectacular vintage condition, shows minimal wear with no dings or chips and it is beautifully polished. You might even reverse it- essentially getting two looks for the price of one!
An effortlessly wearable necklace smooth as silk, 80's luxury chic in a nutshell, perfect for adding a little retro cool to your wardrobe,
