This circa 1960 Victorian Revival pendant boasts a large dark russet carnelian colored glass cabochon in a high setting surrounded by crystal and light yellow rhinestones; a fancy-capped tassel of chains hangs below. The pendant is suspended from a substantial neck chain of large, oval, interwoven links with tiny beaded texture.
The pendant is 5" high including the tapering large bail. The convex, pierced setting is 1 1/2" high and the height is 5/8". The gold-plated setting as cast and durable.
The center stone is 3/4" and held by ornate prongs. The chaton rhinestones alternate crystal and light yellow and sit on octagon which, in turn, is mounted on a rounded square base. The top of the tassel has cast leaves on an open background and is set with one yellow rhinestone. The tassel chains are long slender links with lots of sway.
The chain is just under 15" long plus there is a hook clasp and extender chain which allows you to set the maximum length at about 18 1/2".
Condition is very fine and the look is impressive.
