Gorgeous Edwardian 9kt Gold, Fiery Opal, Freshwater Pearl Lavalier

An astounding piece of Edwardian jewelry, this extraordinary antique lavalier necklace comes from an era of opulence and understated glamour.

Cast in 9 karat gold, the pendant has a languid, yet structural shape, adorned with tiny golden flowers and a magnificent bezel-set opal at its center.

A lavalier is named for the type of pendant popularized by the Duchesse de la Vallière, a mistress of King Louis XIV of France.

A freshwater pearl hangs from the bottom of the pendant, adding beautiful depth and movement.

The central opal is high quality with a lot of fire and colors of reds, blues, greens and pinks.

The bail on the pendant is been embossed with a very small "9CT" symbol, asserting the quality and purity of the gold.

A delicate gold chain is included with the piece, and connects with a small spring ring clasp.

This clasp is also stamped with a purity indicator reading "9K", indicating that the chain is also 9 karat gold.

In near-perfect condition with no flaws or damage, this necklace is a remarkable example of the elegance of its era, and a must-have for any collection.

It is very dainty on the neck and so unusual, you are certain to receive lots of compliments.
