    I bought this yesterday on ebay, the photos aren't brilliant.
    I'm not a Amber lover, mainly I tend to go for vibrant colours. This necklace however fascinates me, mainly I can't work out if it's Art Nouveau or Deco. The leaves appear to be very skilfully crafted and it appears as if it is in 3 D, and the Amber accentuates the design.
    It is marked silver 800 and there are other marks but the photos wouldn't show these clearly. The necklace should be here at the end of the week, so will put more photos on then. I think it is a very interesting piece, I couldn't wait to put it on C W.
    The necklace is 27 cm and the pendant size is 30mm x 20mm and weighs 20grams

      Beautiful...

      I have looked at some of the countries that used 800 silver mark, one of them was Romania, this necklace is coming from Romania.
    3. kyratango kyratango, 7 years ago
      Beautiful! It could be too 70's art nouveau revival...
      I'm looking forward for your post on it's arrival with new pics :-)
    4. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 7 years ago
      I must admit I'm excited about this piece, Kyra, could it be Art Nouveau, or Art Deco which the seller says it is, or has you pointed out 70s Art Nouveau revival.
    5. kyratango kyratango, 7 years ago
      I remember drooling in front of amber and mother of pearl in this kind of design as rings, necklaces and wire bracelets in a show case in Paris St Germain area when I was a student in 75 (I am a jewellery crazy since I learned to walk!)
    6. kyratango kyratango, 7 years ago
      Have a look at ebay item 351208741695, it is described as 80's art nouveau style, chain and design is amazing.
    7. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 7 years ago
      Yes, it's interesting that the silver mark is 800 and the necklace is Polish. When I looked at the photos of the marks on this necklace, there is 800 clearly marked then there seems to be about 3 other marks possibly circles. We shall have to wait and see. Thanks Kyra for the link :-)) And your nice story, I'm a bit of magpie for jewellery myself.

      Hi Jean, I remember seeing these types of necklaces new & for sale when I used to buy from portabello road markets. I think it had come from eastern europe at the time.

      Surprisingly, not many art nouveau or arts & craft makers used amber. I know Amy Saindheim did, but not many others. It's so expensive to buy now.
    11. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 7 years ago
      I'm hoping to get it tomorrow, I have to go down to my local post office, because I live in the country I don't have a post box. I did see markings on one of the photos, it had 800 clearly marked then three other markings one which look like curly hair. I thought it was coming from Romania, but it's Bulgaria. Glad your back :-))
    12. Jewels1900 Jewels1900, 7 years ago
      Thanks Jean. I've been about, just busy with family. I have a few treasures I'll post soon.

      You also had a ring I thought was from the same period, maybe a green stone?
    13. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 7 years ago
      Yes, the Green Agate ring I still have it, I had a problem with my computer a couple of months ago and deleted quite a few items.

      I'm still waiting for this necklace.
    16. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 7 years ago
      This is a good size piece. I can't wait to see the photos once you get it in your little paws!!!

      I'm so curious about it, and it looks amazing.
    17. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 7 years ago
      I'm waiting for 2 pieces, one is in Madrid, customs is holding that one up, I've given all the documents so hopefully it will clear next week, I hope I don't have pay much tax????. This necklace should be there now, I'll be down at the post office next week, keep your fingers crossed, I dont get my post delivered, I have to go and collect it..
      Thank you Shareurpassion and ozmarty for the love.
    18. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 7 years ago
      Many thanks to both shareurpassion and PatSea. If this necklace isn't waiting for me at the post office tomorrow, I won't (as we say England) be a happy bunny.

      Look what I've just found. The necklace came today I've added new photos.
      Jewels1900, you were spot on.
    20. kyratango kyratango, 7 years ago
      Beautifuly done! Glad you got it!
    21. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 7 years ago
      Many thanks Kyra, I've just read through my comments and you said the same has Jewels1900, well done the both of you, this mystery is now solved.

      I bet that looks impressive whe worn...love it...:-)
    24. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 7 years ago
      Thanks, inky, Amber isn't the usual stone I would go for, but even though I say it myself it's a looker. But what was brilliant about this piece, is that it was solved, I spent ages going through all the websites, the day I received this necklace I found the sister to it on Etsy, that was strange.
    25. inky inky, 7 years ago
      Meant to be!..:-)
    26. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 7 years ago
      I think you would call it fate or luck, lol

      I've just found this on eBay, more or less the same, I could believe the price.
    31. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 5 years ago
      I meant to say I couldn't believe he price they were asking for this.
