Here we have an utterly feminine and gentle antique 15k gold pendant paired with an original 18k gold necklace. Crafted in the late Victorian - early Edwardian era, this mesmerizing gem is set with genuine olive-green peridots and numerous natural seed pearls.
A beautiful composition of the baroque descending floral ornamentation with an articulated flower blossom as the central part of this bouquet. All peridots are set in open back collet settings with fine millegrain detailing and are absolutely flawless.
I adore a very fine detailing of the surrounding ornament and it`s inverted descending floral petals. Each set with a tiny pearl as tiny as 0.5 mm at the times! The center piece has a free fixation, so the blossom will move along with you giving this lovely piece so much lightness and springtime feeling.
This beauty dates back to the late 19th - early 20th century and comes from a private collection in France. A unique, collectors` item piece - hope it finds a new home soon!
