Mother of pearl Black onyx Marcasite 18 inch necklace 925 sterling silver Vintage?
Unknown. Estate sale
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
It is a lovely vintage necklace. The necklace is made of 925 sterlingsilver and decorated with black onyx, mother of pearl and marcasite. The choice of materials and the design is typical of jewellery from the 1950s-1970s. The necklace appears to be in fairly good condition without faults or chips to the mother of pearl and onyx. This is important for the value. The materials used for the necklace are not the most expensive materials which is reflected in the appraisal.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online jewellery auction, where I believe the necklace has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the necklace. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
