I'm certain this is at least from the 1930's because of the clasp and it could be 1920's Egyptian Revival...might be gold instead of brass base metal. I'm not sure. The links are all hand soldered (a little solder shows). The pyramids have a gentle dot texture on surface. The green carved flower is cracked - so sad - but all in place and doesn't show when wearing. And the bracelet is very special - larger links than necklace.

No marks at all. Always gets comments. I love Egyptian jewelry so it couldn't have landed with a better owner than me. I found in the early 90's at a thrift store for $4.50, knew it was really special that day. I will never part with it... or maybe for a trip to Egypt... or at the very least will wear it on my trip to Egypt.

    I believe this was actually made to simulate a Chinese piece
    See that stone? That was made to imitate antique Chinese jade carvings
    They look exactly like that too, rectangular, usually floral, chrysanthemums, sometimes dragons
    Great set. Small miracle they weren't separated in the past 80 years

    They were hooked together so yes - they survived together! Thanks for your comments. I love this set.
