Songstress necklace - SGD 128 - Sold

I thought I would kick start my return with some oriental creations, true to this blog's name :)

Songstress is a chic chinois starlet with a medley of smooth & faceted semiprecious gemstones in bottle greens, corals and luscious reds. The spotlight is on the amazing brassy gilt finish butterfly set with shiny green, garnet and sapphire paste stones. It is quite old, originally part of an art deco 20s era trembler brooch but the rivet attaching the butterfly to it has broken with age. The pink enamel floral cut out disc is also vintage, though a more modern contemporary of its butterfly counterpart. 

Other interesting details include a single red acrylic rose, rose quartz leaf, japanese tensha, jade accents with toggle closure. Necklace measures a slightly longer 21" in length.
