A delicate and gorgeous antique necklace from the late Edwardian era, circa 1915! Made of 9ct gold, the gold colour is an attractive warm antique rose with yellow tint. The chandelier style pendant suspends from a fine trace chain. The pendant features two garnet top doublets and two red pastes. One faceted cushion-cut paste is placed at the centre of the pendant, and three faceted oval-cut garnet top doublets and paste sway from a rail which connects to the circular centrepiece. Each of the gems are individually claw set and delicate, yet simple wirework make up the rest of the pendant. The necklace length measures 38cm (15") in total length. A metal barrel-style clasp connects chain together with a firm click.
The piece is early Australian. The stamps are just in view and are that of the early Australian quality guarantee - a '9' and 'Sheaf' stamp denoting 9ct gold, and a 'pyramid' stamp denoting early Australian jeweller Edwards & Dumbrell of Melbourne, Victoria.
