Antique Victorian Important Pearl and Diamond Necklace, 18k Gold c. 1870

There's no reason you should own just one necklace, but if you had to choose just one, this would be it! It can be worn as a sophisticated short collar with that little sheath dress, or as a sultry necklace with that black-tie ball gown.

This wonderfully detailed necklace has no marks on it, surprisingly, but was no doubt made sometime around 1870. It can be worn a myriad of different ways. The base necklace is 16.5" long and sports a fringe of gold drops set with natural pearls. The clasp has a one inch lengthener to adjust for different necklines. Then there's the drop, a wonderful natural pearl star with an Old European cut diamond at it's center, it attaches to the collar via a pearl set hanger. It can also be worn as a brooch, either on it's own or alongside the collar. Now that's one versatile piece of jewelry.

Exquisitely made of 18 karat gold by a master craftsman, it has been acid tested to verify content. It is in excellent condition, all the pearls appear to be original and are very well color matched. A truly classical work of art. It weighs 35.4 grams.
