New York City-based designer Gerard Yosca is a legend among the fashion and jewelry elite. For nearly three decades, he has created innovative, trend-setting collections that inspire year after year. Entirely self taught, his fascination with understanding how things are made has led him on a constant quest to discover, create and design. In 1983 Gerard Yosca discovered the old fashioned medium of colored enamel and this piece happens to be among his most beautiful creations.
This gorgeous Yosca necklace has an exceptional, oval, black enamel cabochon with a brilliant cameo impression of a Roman soldier. As extraordinary embellishments, this piece has three groups of gold plated chain tassels with round gold plated beads dangling elegantly from the medallion. The black enamel medallion pendant is in a gold plated setting which signed Yosca and also has a handwritten signature with date on the reverse (possibly the artist signature). The medallion measures approximately 1.25″L x 1.75″W, the tassels adding 1.25″L on each side and another 2.5″L making the entire pendant four inches in length (4″L). The thick, gold plated chain measures 16.5″L which is finished off with a large gold plated lobster claw clasp. The pendant measures just under 2″L x 1″W and is in beautiful vintage condition with only a slight discoloration on the cabochon which is completely unnoticeable.
