This gorgeous antique necklace is a rare find. The central turquoise has amazing character with its range of green tones. The turquoise is bezel set into an ornate leafy frame of 14K gold (not marked but acid tested). Three long, triangular shaped freshwater pearls dangle delicately below the frame.
The pearls have amazing luster and measure between 5-6 mm. They practically glow under the light! The pearls were recently restrung by my jeweler as the thread had become stretched and had gaps. There are knots between each pearl.
The clasp is a more modern replacement and is marked 14K on the hook.
The central piece measures 1-1/2" wide by 2-3/8" long. Overall necklace 'neck' dimension is 17".
Will ship insured registered mail in the US.
The pearls will arrive in a beautiful Bailey Banks & Biddle box (not original to the necklace)
