Antique Gold Plated and Black Enamel Button Pendant Conversion Necklace - 12K GF Louis Stern Chain - 18 Inches - Repurposed #d424

Regular price $88.00
This necklace is a conversion piece consisting of a unique button or costume trimming pendant and a gold filled cable chain. The pendant is a 10 micron gold plated piece that is teardrop-shaped. It has a large hole on one end and a beautiful black and gold enamel finish on the rest of the piece. The enamel has a black background with lovely gold dots, quatrefoils and fleur-de-lis decorations throughout. The piece is domed and has a button-style loop on the back for attaching it to clothing or other items. With its style and decoration, I'm dating it to circa the 1920s. As soon as I saw this wonderful piece, I thought it would make a superb pendant. I added a large gold filled, locking clasp as a bail and placed it on a vintage Louis Stern gold filled cable chain. The chain closes with an old thumbless, bolt ring style clasp. I think it makes a stunning necklace!

The pendant measures about 1 1/2 inches long and 13/16 inch wide. It is signed and hallmarked "RS" inside a circle and "Plaque Or G 10 Microns" on the back. I was unable to identify the maker's mark. The chain measures approximately 18 inches long and 1mm wide. It is signed and hallmarked "Lustern" for Louis Stern and "1/20 12K G.F." on its attached ring. The combined weight of the pieces is 6.8 grams.

This repurposed piece is high-quality and very bright and shiny. Although I was unable to determine exactly what it would have been used for, I think it makes an extraordinarily beautiful pendant! Both the button pendant and the chain are in excellent antique condition and ready to wear!
