This feminine Art Nouveau pendant contains a wonderful assortment of natural river pearls configured in the shape of a flower blossom. The slender pearls are set around a striking stippled 14K gold domed centre, and as flower buds on the gold "stem" just below. In addition, there are tiny natural seed pearls set on one leaf and another on the gold bail. Then on the bottom--a fabulous splash of colour!
The teardrop shaped salmon-pink coral is a gorgeous addition to the lovely piece, both in colour and form: the all-white top could have been lost if not for the vivid orange coral. The teardrop shape adds a wonderful soft touch. The coral is natural and guaranteed to be genuine.
Pendant measures 1&5/8" long by 3/4" across. Pearl flower is just over 1/2"; coral is 3/8" long. Weight: 2.0 grams.
Pendant is in super condition, with no damage. Looking under a loupe, the pearls have good nacre and are free of wear. Coral has no nicks or flea bites. Back is stamped "14."
