Dainty antique demi-parure is comprised of a sterling silver, marcasite, and mother of pearl necklace and sterling with marcasites screw back earrings. The pieces are rhodium plated for maximum sheen and reduced need to polish. The earrings are featured in Roseann Ettinger's Popular Jewelry 1840-1940, p. 164. It’s a very pretty set.

Pendant has a "rope" frame, a gorgeous flower accented with marcasites, and a perfect little mother of pearl center. Even the bail has a lovely design accented with marcasites. Pendant is marked Sterling on the back and measures 7/8" across, and it hangs from a sterling chain marked on the spring ring clasp AMC 925 and Italy. I'm not sure if the chain is original to the set, but it's how it came to me so it's how it'll go to you too. It measures 16-5/8" long.

Earrings measure 3/4" high x 9/16" wide and repeat the floral design seen in the pendant, complete with beautiful marcasites. Both are signed Sterling on the screw back post, although one signature is a little harder to see than the other.

Condition is excellent with very very minor wear consistent with age. The chain could use a light polish if that's your thing but it's fine as is too, with lovely patina.
