The most darling antique, late Victorian pearl heart pendant with her original chain is here to tug at your heart ! Those 44 wee split natural pearls are so gorgeous, like a mini sea of pearly creams, oyster pinks and moonlight greys.... some a little deeper in colour than others. We love how the pavè setting means she is studded with them from head to toe.
Both the heart and the original chain date back to around 1900 and are marked 9ct, for 9 carat English gold - the heart on the back, the chain on a little plaque by the original smooth barrel clasp! It is the most gorgeous rose gold and compliments the antique tone of the pearls perfectly. The old 9 carat rose gold colour is so gentle and mellow and it looks stunning with everything!! Jewels, clothes, tans, no tans.. the list goes on! The heart measures 0.53 x 0.47 inches and her total length with her jump ring bale is 0.72 inches. The nice thing is the heart easily comes off the chain as the barrel clasp so easily allows it and so you could use the chain for your other pendants as well as add more charms to keep this heart company! The heart weighs 1.5 grams and the chain weighs 1.4 grams. The length of the chain is 17.5 inches. As you can see her antique condition is absolutely wonderful, of course with minimal wear marks to the gold, as you should always see with your antique jewellery and a few of the pearls are a little rubbed. Just one tiny one on the top right edge has been replaced a long time ago with an old, matching pearl. All down to her lovely, ripe age of nearly 120 years !!
We love .........the gentle, feminine charm of this romantic pendant. It's like moonlight and sunshine that whisper I love you....
