Vintage 18K Gold, Diamond, Cultured Pearl & Blue Spinel Lavaliere Necklace
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1970 or so - from the Estate of an elderly woman
ITEM: In the manner of Downton Abbey jewelry (and in fact, one of the main cast members is seen wearing a similar style of this necklace in Season Two of the series), here's a stunning white gold pendant necklace featuring diamonds, a single cultured pearl and a faceted blue stone which may (or may not be) synthetic. The blue stone was sold to me by one of my local jewelers as Spinel but a Mizer test puts the stone into the Sapphire range; since synthetic Sapphire tests the same as genuine, the blue stone, again, is possibly synthetic.
The pendant is suspended from a white gold chain - a medium fine cable it seems. Simple spring clasp closure.
CONDITION: Excellent with no problems I can spot.
METAL CONTENT: 18K Gold
HALLMARKS: 750 on the catch; 18K on the disc attached to the chain. Pendant cannot be removed from the chain so the hallmark on the chain would encompass the pendant as well.
SIZE: Length of the chain is 17". Pendant measures 1-1/4" long x 5/16" wide.
Diamonds number 3 and measure 2.5mm (5 points each). Total carat weight of the diamonds is .15CT TW. Color os G and clarity of the large one is SI1 while the smaller are VS1, Gorgeous clear, sparkly diamonds!
The pearl measures 5mm.
The blue spinel/sapphire/synthetic stone measures 9mm x 7mm (2.5 Carats approx.) Note: If indeed Spinel, Spinel is a natural gemstone - a close cousin to a diamond! If synthetic, the stone has all the properties of a Sapphire!
WEIGHT: 4.8 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: One GORGEOUS necklace!
