This is an early c1900s to 1920s Filigree Rhodium overlay Necklace and Bracelet Set
White metals were all the rage at this time. Jewellery makers used a Rhodium overlay to keep the pieces shiney and bright (Pure Rhodium is too brittle to use in jewellery) Rhodium is the most expensive metal in the world even outranking Platinum and Palladium. The base metal to this piece is unknown, white gold, sterling and other white metals were used and it is impossible to tell without filing the pieces which damages them. This is the cross over period between the Art Nouveau and Art Deco jewellery period.
The necklace and bracelet both have clear diamantes set within their centres. The filigree work is like spun sugar. Such a beautiful set which is in very good antique vintage condition without issues to note.
The bracelet is 6.5 inches long or 16.5cms and the necklace is 39cms or 15.25 long with the pendant drop measuring another 2 inches or 5.5cms including the filigree v shaped bail.
Both pieces are signed on the clasp PSCO ( P.S. CO. — Plainville Stock Co., Plainville, MA; USA 1896 — unknown)
