The Art Deco Era is famous for being the "Gatsby" or "Roaring Twenties" Era. A lot of gorgeous and timeless designs in jewelry came out of this period. During the Art Deco Period jewelers often made jewelry upon custom order, this would often take weeks to months to completely craft by hand.

Chinese Export jewelry became popular during the late Victorian Period and lasted until the 1960's. In a lot of ways Chinese Export jewelry fashioned what we know of jewelry today. During these period's Chinese Craftsmen including Jewelers, Stone cutters were considered by far the best in the world. The rich and wealthy would have a piece custom ordered through their local jeweler whom was usually gifted at drawing a design to send off to contacts in China to craft and send back. As you can imagine, this was not cheap, that being said, these pieces are very rare and few have survived until today.
Chinese Stonecutters were considered some of the finest artisans in the world during the Vintage Era. They would carve western themes as well as the more rare traditional eastern themes into their many pieces. Repoussé began as an ancient metal working technique, involving malleable silver first formed with a specially created three-dimensional mold and then further refined by hammering from the reverse side and adding detail to the front.

The finished work was intricate, with grooves, indentation and channeling. It was then carefully polished as an eye-catching treasure. The necklace includes hand carved wood beads, possibly teak, but i'm not sure. It also includes what looks to.

The necklace features beautiful handmade craftsmanship and Art Deco Era designs including a gorgeous hand blown repousse sterling silver floral flower pendant and silver beads. The pendant includes beautiful detail work within the repousse and is very large! This beautiful necklace would of been completely made by hand and is a true Chinese rarity. It is huge and features some of the rarest stones out there with gorgeous metal work throughout.
