Art Nouveau Gold and Cultured Pearl Lavaliere

This lovely turn-of-the-century lavaliere has a beautiful form that straddles the line between the Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts styles. The gold has a lovely soft finish that is highlighted by a lovely pear-shaped pearl drop at the bottom and a baroque pearl in the center. While the necklace pre-dates the invention of pearl culturing, I have not had the pearls x-rayed to confirm that they are natural so it's possible that they could be replacement cultured pearls which is why I am listing it as having cultured pearls.

The design manages to be delicate yet bold at the same time, not an easy thing to accomplish. The pendant is marked 10K on the back and I'm including a gold-filled chain.
