Calling on the A&C experts! Any ideas on this necklace?

Elaborate 3-chain swag necklace with dangles, large emeralds (both bead and cabochon), natural pearls, diamonds and gold motif in 18K circa 1900; most likely custom-made, no marks to be found anywhere.

    Spectacular piece and very unusual, I have no idea whose work it is, but it's an interesting style with a slightly Gothic Revival look.

    Something about it says American to me, but that's just a gut feeling.

    OMG!! Simply wow! Those rocks are unbelievable! I agree w/ Kiwipaul.. American, perhaps Tiffany? It is certainly of that niveau. Thanks for showing!

    Incredible beauty, agree with Paul and BelleEpoque :-)

    I agree, American. On the cusp of nouveau & arts & crafts. Really very fine work. It's amazing to think someone would make this but not mark it.

    PS, so lovely to be sharing so much great arts & crafts.

    Thanks everyone! Jewels, you may be right. It has an A&C feel, but the swags seemed of a different genre as I usually "think" of A&C as being less fussy. Is this true?

    Yes, sad there are no marks, but if a custom order, I would assume there wouldn't be unless from one of the major studios.

    Hi Bluboi! Sorry to be off topic, but have you seen this, so Bluboi-ish!

    i agree that this is more art nouveau jewelry than arts/crafts. way too fussy for a/c. but of course, they did overlap in time.
