Antique Victorian 14K Gold Faux Amethyst & Seed Pearl Lavaliere Necklace

Dates to the late Victorian era, circa 1900.

Crafted in solid 14K yellow gold, and hallmarked as such. As the gold was tarnished, I also acid tested this piece to verify the gold content. This piece also bears a partial maker's mark, which I am unable to identify.

Openwork pendant features four tiny buttercup flowers, all inset with tiny genuine split seed pearls. A further 10 split seed pearl adorn this piece, as well as two dangling bezel-set faux (glass) amethysts - one 3.75 mm stone and a larger 4.75 mm stone. Finished with a fine O-ring chain.

Necklace measures just slightly over 18.5" from end to end. The lavalier pendant portion measures 1.40" from side to side, and 1.44" from top to bottom. This piece weighs 2.99 grams.

Condition is very good, with no damages. Spring ring clasp and end ring appear to be replacements.
