This 14k gold Art Nouveau-era piece would have traditionally been used as a watch chain, but now makes a unique necklace that can be worn a multitude of ways. The round slide features the face of a woman with a diamond in her hair to represent a flower. The woman appears to be gazing off into the landscape, and the border ties into a beautiful bow above her head. The slide still works and firmly holds its position, allowing it to be moved up and down on the chain to create different shapes, styles, and looks. The delicate chain contains small, open links for a feminine, lacy effect.
The slide on the chain functions much like that of a bolo tie. The chain is long, so it can be looped two or three times, with a charm or pendant clasped into the chain. It can also be fed through like a lariat for a double chain with the slide dangling beautifully at the bottom of the necklace. The chain can even be clipped onto itself for layering, or to create teardrop shapes, making this an elegant, one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry.
The chain is 60 inches long, and the piece weighs 11.25 grams. The diamond is 1.5mm in diameter and the slide 5/8” by 1/4”.
