A perfect necklace for the admirer of pretty vintage things...
This tiny shell-based seed pearl necklace and rhodonite pendant come together beautifully. The creamy pink colour of the pearls blend nicely with the contrasting shades in the rhodonite gemstone. The heart shaped rhodonite features blackish dendrite veins throughout, along with brownish beige veins. This creates a striking variation and pleasing visual with seed pearls.
The 1.95mm shell based seed pearls date back to 1930's and have attached, what appears to be, the original sterling silver marcasite clasp. The strand is a short 'choker' length at 15' or 39cm. Rhodonite pendant is also vintage, dating to around 1980's. It is attached onto strand with silver jump ring - flowing along strand nicely. Heart rhodonite pendant measures 20mm x 20mm.
