    This is a piece that I got from my sister years ago (because she owed me money, lol) She said it was antique, but I am unsure. The green is I think is stone and not glass, Emerald? Also it is sterling and has an H in between 2 sideways triangles. Can anyone id the maker or stone? I have googled & tried every sterling maker's mark site I could find until my fingers feel like they are going to fall off for the makers mark to no avail.

      The stone is glass...and was usually highly reactive to black light. Uranium glass......
      hope this helps.

      Here's a gold hallmark with an interesting similarity. The more I look at your hallmark, the more it looks like arrows, not triangles. That might make a difference in your search efforts.

      I found the manufacturer! Helgen Mfg was based in Rhode Island they were founded in 1896 and the company was sold to Samsan Co in 1973. Helgen hallmark is an H surrounded by two triangles. I did find a bracelet also with an Emerald in it by them and a pendant with rhinestones. It says they made fine jewelry with diamonds and gemstones etc. and costume jewelry with rhinestones and enamel.

      Pendant:

      I wanted to comment on this Art Deco necklace with the green stone in it. I know you were told this was Peridot but it is most likely synthetic Spinel and under black light it will glow neon green. Peridot doesn't glow under black light so a good way to check what you have. Regardless very beautiful item.
