    Here I show a wonderful enameled silver necklace with Marcasites. There is a mark at the back : BJL. The flower is in peach color enamel. I think it's of the Art Nouveau period because of the flower and the moving lines, but I'am not sure. I have this idea because I found a similar to see on this link: http://www.adin.be/en/2ndpage.asp?dtn=11227-0033&titel=Huge%20silver%20Art%20Nouveau%20enameled%20iris%20brooch%20with%20marcasite
    Have you any idea of the maker(s) or company ?

    A while ago I found this comment on this website:
    http://www.jewelsandfinery.co.uk/signed-uk-jewellery-439-c.asp and this was the text I found:
    BJL - Unknown maker 1920 - 1930, most often seen enamel jewellery is the enamel and marcasite brooches, clip earrings & necklaces but they are quite rare and underrated. It appears that some of their items are unsigned and only if you find a signed piece can they be identified at present.

      What an outstanding piece! I would say its more art nouveau only because of the lack of geometric lines. Whatever and whenever aside its fantastic! Happy hunting!

      Hello Peekaboo, thanks for your comment. The markings are, as far as I can see: BJL . I suppose from the maker but I don't know for sure.

      Its deffinitely Art Nouveau in style, but it doesn't look to be of that era to me. That is a machine-cut screw on the back, and it just LOOKS later. My guess would be 1940's, which is when lots of sterling costume jewelry was made

      You could be right, but I love the color it is realy a beautiful piece of jewelry.
      Thanks again for your knowledge!

      After a long time I found a similar this is dated Art Nouveau. So I have the answer on dating this necklace. You will find this similar jewel on the link mentioned above in the description.
