Fantastic Art Nouveau 9k Turquoise Pendant and Chain Necklace

Things get remodeled, I'm fine with that. Take this alluring and imaginative make over for example. What started out life as a hat pin has been transformed into a glorious pendant that is eminently wearable, classic, and simply smashing.

Two glowing cabochon cut turquoise gems have wonderful variegated Robin's egg blue color and simply pop in this fantastic glowing Art Nouveau mounting. My sneaking suspicion is that hat pin was designed by the firm of Murrle Bennett, but it's not marked except with '9ct' indicating the 9 karat gold content. It does appear that the pin stem was removed from the back and the drop and chain added, I don't think that this was done recently. A perfectly wonderful change that allows this piece to be much more relevant today, the original hat pin dates to about 1900. The drop measures 1 1/4 inches wide and about 2 inches long and weighs 7.1 grams. The 9 karat chain is 18" long and weighs 2 grams. The gold of both the pendant and the chain have a rosy hue to them.
