This stunning suite has a few things on it that I rarely find. Because of that I had my jeweler confirm my findings as to the identity of the stones and which were natural or lab created. She also checked the metal content and confirmed my findings.
Some of the metal is ferrous or non-precious. The jump rings between all of the links are a ferrous metal. So is the Shepherd's hook on the necklace. All of the rest of the metal is 10k white or yellow gold. There is also some decorative granulated 10k yellow gold plating on some of the chains.
This suite is in excellent vintage condition with no missing stones or repairs. There are no visible hallmarks. JSP testing solution was used to verify the metal content. A Presidium gem tester was use to verify the gemstones.
Because Classic ..... Never goes out of style.
