This antique Victorian pendant is a fine piece of jewelry, timeless and elegant in its simplicity and style. The frame of the pendant is crafted in 9 K gold, ornate with a chased motif that I cannot identify. The center of the pendant is occupied by a long torpedo shaped natural chalcedony. The teardrop cut chalcedony stone is consistent in color and structure, well polished and smooth. The top of the drop is capped in gold, hanging from the top of the frame.
The pendant can be worn on a black velvet or silk ribbon as well as on a gold chain.
Measurements of the pendant are: 62 mm long (including the bale) x 20 mm wide.
Measurements of the capped chalcedony drop itself are: 41 mm long x 9 mm wide at its widest.
The pendant has no marks on it. I acid tested the gold frame at 9K gold and the bale at 14K gold.
Condition is fine antique with patina consistent with age, ready to wear.
NOTE: The chain is for display purpose only, not for sale.
