Vintage 18K GOLD Necklace - 3CT TW Diamond, Cultured Pearl, Festoon, Drop, White Gold
Welcome to Robins Nest Midwest!
First off, this item is subject to prior sale so please contact me before putting it into your basket so that I can make sure it is still available (9 times out of 10, it usually is!). Where’s it from? Well, one of my best sources of jewelry who has given me carte blanche to photo what I want to present to my customers.
Up for offer now……..
ITEM: Do you ever wonder why you don't see too many BLING necklaces on the secondary market? Well, it's because the "good stuff" usually stays in the family; so what I offer here is very, very special. Bought in by my guys, the lady didn't want a necklace, she wanted a BIG diamond ring. And, of course, when I spotted THIS necklace, well, I just had to grab to offer to my customers.
Made of high carat white gold and featuring masses of diamonds and cultured pearl drops, this festooon drop necklace is positively stunning on the neck. I know my photos don't show this piece to its best advantage, and you certainly don't want to see this piece on a little old lady's neck, so let me just tell you that it drapes beautifully, looks like a million dollars on and is sure to draw gasps of admiration from anyone! Tongue in clasp closure with a side safety latch for added security.
CONDITION: Excellent with no problems I can spot. The necklace is very flexible, especially at the bottom so it moves with the person wearing it.
METAL CONTENT: 18K GOLD
HALLMARKS: 18K on the tongue
DIAMONDS: Round faceted beauties that have been graded SI with H color. In the back chain, there are 90 diamonds (prong set) measuring about 1/2 point each for a total weight of .45CT TW.
In the bars at the top of the pearls, there are 34 diamonds - 9 at 1 point, 25 at 1/2 point each for a total weight of 21.5CT TW.
The "florettes" at the top hold 44 bezel set diamonds measuring 1.5 points for a total weight of .66CT TW.
The bottom "loops" hold 81 diamonds with graduated diamonds ranging from 1/2 point to 1.5 points - GUESSTIMATED weight in this area is 1.55CT
The round diamonds between each loop number 12 and measure 1.5 points for a total weight of .18CT TW.
........TOTAL DIAMOND WEIGHT of the necklace is 3CT TW approx.
CULTURED PEARLS: 11 teardrop shaped freshwater cultured pearls. The color is very white as opposed to cream. While some of the pearls are completely smooth and clean, others have texture and some tiny marks. For the most part, the pearls were chosen with care as to "best match" - they are spiked from the top as well as glued and, I must admit, I do see one pearl where the jeweler might have been a little excessive of his use of the stubstance. Can't be seen an everything I mention is visible only with a 10X loupe. The smallest pearl measures 1/4" long while the biggest is 1/2" long.
SIZE: Neck length is 16"; it cannot be adjusted. The drop length, at the very center, is 1".
WEIGHT: 39.5 grams. Yes, a nice bit of weight to the piece. The makers didn't skimp on the gold here.
FINAL COMMENTS: I can do a slight discount only on this piece so I haven't put in a MAKE OFFER button - just contact me to see what I can do.
Again, SUBJECT TO PRIOR SALE so please contact me before putting in your basket.
