Romantic Antique French Necklace : Fine Roses & Gold Petals

The subject of this romantic necklace, although typical 19th Century, announces the coming of the Art Nouveau style. Romance and love are symbolized by beautiful flowers : refined roses with highly detailed petals in 18 high Carat yellow gold.

In beauty, shape and scent, the rose is outstanding and hence has become the most commonly used floral symbol in the West. Roses have symbolical meanings in classic and Christian art. For example Venus was associated with roses, symbolizing love and beauty, whereas Virgin Mary sometimes was called a « rose without thorns » because of her purity.

Made in France around 1900, we are sure of the origin of this necklace because of the French control mark for 18K gold representing an eagle’s head that was in use in France from about 1838. The necklace weighs 10.20 grams and measures 42.00 cm (16.54 inch). Delivered with its authenticity certificate.

  1. A diamond ring is perhaps the most romantic gift you can possibly give to a woman. The diamond ring for most people is a symbol of eternal love, eternal love, a love that will survive the hands of time. This is very appropriate as the diamond is the hardest part of the world.
