Very rare and hard to find these necklaces. This is a fine example of
classic Victorian jewelry that made a statement when worn.
It is gilded which sets off the golden citrines beautifully. The citrines
are huge with stunning play of color. The center stone is a whopping 22mm
in length and 15mm width. It is a deep cut stone too. There are
four more in the dangling portion, one round and three ovals.
The silver work consists of fine hand-made paisley shaped
designs of textured silver surrounding the stones. Each capped with
a tiny bead. I have owned this necklace for about 20 years and guarantee
that it is authentic. Stones have been electronically and the
metal tested for sterling. It has the original fish hook clasp
and is all original with no damage. Circa 1900.
