This pretty Yellow Gold necklace has wonderful details and is set with a Blue Montana Sapphire and 2 American River pearls.
American Jewelry Makers in the late 1800's to early 1900's were doing really lovely designs and concentrating on using American materials. Montana Sapphires were discovered in 1865 and put into commercial jewelry use shortly thereafter, these sapphires are a particularly lovely cornflower blue. The small pearls used in American Jewelry of this period came either from the Mississippi or Tennessee Rivers. Pearls are still being found in these rivers.
Converted from a 1910 brooch this bar necklace looks fabulous alone or layered.
