Antique Art Nouveau necklace. 14k gold, peridot, amethyst and pearl. Made early 20th century - circa 1905-1918. 

Measurements: Weight is 7.5 grams. 16 inches (41cm) long.

Description : Antique, classic Art Nouveau Belle Epoque necklace. Sits beautifully at the nape of the neck. A central openwork design of overlapping scrolls of varying lengths, some with tiny gold beadwork in their centers. This central gold motive is suspended from a pink colored amethyst from which it can swing freely. Another, colette-set amethyst of a darker purple in the middle of the central station. Below is a freely swinging baroque pearl. On either side are gold chain swags in 3 tiers, with peridot at the penultimate swag.
The colors of this necklace are symbolic of the Suffragette movement: GWV standing for both Give Women the Vote and Green, white and violet, which is represented by pink and purple. Today, women interested in jewelry and women interested in the Women's Movement are keen collectors of Suffragette jewelry.
Looks stunning when worn.

Marks and Metal: Marked on the back 14k and J&S (possibly U&S), which are presumably the initials of the makers. Additionally, electronic testing to ensure metal purity.

Condition: Good with minor wear commensurate with age. Please see enlarged pictures and don't hesitate to ask questions which we will do our best to answer.
