Up for offer now……..
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: Unique Victorian necklaces are SO hard to find and, in searching the Internet, I never found anything like the offering I now list. Fashioned from rose gold, this necklace features a mass of natural pearl halos as well as cab amethysts, 5 of the cabs shaped like "bullets". The end result is this breathaking piece of jewelry! Spring clasp closure.
CONDITION: All the stones are in terrific condition with no chips or cracks. The pearls match nicely but, as some time in its like, either a jeweler or the new owner decided to make sure the pearls would stay put by adding more glue than is usual in the halo setting. It's is not visible to the naked eye when the necklace is being worn but under a 10X loupe, the clear glue can easily be seen.
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold
HALLMARKS: As is the norm with Victorian pieces made in the United States, none. Metal has been lightly acid tested for content.
SIZE: Neck length is 15". The drop at the center measures 2-1/2" long. The pearl sections measure 3/4" wide/high; the smaller rounds measure 1/4" wide/high; the medium rounds 3/8" wide/high and the diamond shaped sections measure 7/16" wide/high. The pearls measure 2mm.
WEIGHT: 14 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: This is a lovely necklace that someone took the time to keep intact. So for the purists out there, it's perfect. But then there are other jewelers out there who might be thinking, hmm, a pair of earrings, maybe 2 pair of earrings, maybe a short collar necklace. Victorian jewelry is hard to find and I would rather see this piece kept intact than taken apart but.....
