This Art Nouveau pendent is delightful as well as being in wonderful condition. The gold mum has well defined and crisp definition to it's petals. The enamel on the leaves is comprised of delicate shading and the beautiful colored citrine is done in a drop shape with a collar rim.
The gold is in excellent plus condition with no cracks, dents, rips, deep scratches, nasty abrasions or repairs. Those two minute holes you see on the backside of the mum are original to manufacture. The bale is an oval ring that will fit a good variety of chains. The translucent glass enamel is done in the flow on style and appears to be all original. As it is flow on you will find it to be thicker in recessed areas and thinner, more translucent, in raised areas as is normal to the style. The 2mm pearls are spike and glue mounted. They have no chips and are well matched in color. They appear to be natural, not cultured, but if they are they have no value other then as accents. The citrine is that lovely gold brown color, almost Madeira, and is cut in a standard drop cut. It does have some bites to it's facet rims and an approx. 1/50" chip to a bottom area triangular shaped facet rim. But none of this is visible unless you inspect the drop with a loupe.
The pendent is being sold alone, it has no chain included. But all of us have a few chains available in our jewelry box. There are no gold or makers marks. Rich has acid tested and will guarantee a minimum of 14kt. gold. With the bale the pendent hangs 1 11/16"' long and is 3/4" at widest point.
