Vintage Victorian Revival Retro Modern 14K Yellow Gold Natural Pearl Green Nephrite Jade Pendant or Pin
I may be wrong but I date this piece to around the 1950s, the era when Victorian Revival pieces reigned supreme. Fashioned of yellow gold, this pin pendant combination features a carved nephrite jade center surrounded by a wrapped border of natural seed pearls (4 at each section save for where the catch is - then there are only 3 due to lack of space). The piece has a safety catch at the back to hold the pin in place as well as a fold down bale if you decide to wear this piece as a pendant. Condition is excellent with no problems I can spot. With regard to the stone, light does not penetrate it.
Metal Content: 14K Gold with Hallmarks of 14K on the bale and 14K at the bottom of the pendant on the reverse.
Size: When bale is down, the pendant measures 1-1/8" high/wide.
Weight: 6.9 grams
Final Comments: All that's needed now is the right chain - mine is for display purposes only.
