This lovely 4 strand natural seed pearl necklace has a warm creamy hue with pretty luster. The clasp has 8 small rose cut diamonds and half pearls. They were bead set by hand.
The clasp is testing for around 15K. There are 3 hallmarks which I am not able to identify. On the outside of the clasp there is one and when opened it appears to be a figure and maker's mark which says J.P. The necklace is dainty but a good length. The shortest strand measures 16". Then 16 1/4, 16 3/4 and 17". The clasp closes perfectly with a nice snap.
Necklace is in excellent antique condition with no apologies to be made. It was purchased in Italy and is European in origin.
Circa 1830 ~ Late Georgian early Victorian.
