This is a stunningly beautiful Arts and Crafts necklace from the very sought-after London jewellery designer, Omar Ramsden. The top section of the pendant has a round, domed chrysoprase stone bezel set in a kind of flower decoration with silver. From each side of this flower are suspended two chains, each holding one of the typical Ramsden knotted links, found on other pieces of his work too.The main part of the pendant has those striking, interwoven and twisted wires of silver, which is again typical of Ramsden's work. Set around the main stone are oval cabochons of the same apple green chrysoprase, all of various heights. Such an amazing touch, which really adds to the impressiveness of this piece.
The stones are beauties, apple green in some light but their colours can also shift in other light and you can see the individual nature of their colour. In super order, with one tiny shaving from a smaller stone on the reverse..Not detectable from front at all. This is a wonderful piece of work attributed to the great Omar Ramsden, which looks fabulous on too. 6cm in height and 4.5cm wide. 65cm in length, but can be fastened tighter as it has extra loops for doing so... That would make it approx. 54cm or 60cm is also possible. The original hand-crafted shepherd's hook fastener remains. I will send this beautiful necklace by International Tracked and Signed from here in Italy. Box is for display purposes only.
