Antique Mississippi River Pearl Daisy Brooch / Pendant with Citrine CenterAntique Mississippi River Pearl Daisy Brooch / Pendant with Citrine CenterAntique Mississippi River Pearl Daisy Brooch / Pendant with Citrine CenterAntique Mississippi River Pearl Daisy Brooch / Pendant with Citrine Center

Elongated Mississippi River pearls form the petals of a daisy in this sublime antique brooch/pendant. The center of the daisy is a golden citrine in a beautiful shade of deep yellow.

While ethereal in color and form, this brooch/pendant has a bold scale, measuring 1-1/2" diameter. It has a cleverly-designed clasp/bail in which the bent wire of the "C" clasp continues around and forms a closed loop bail.

This brooch/pendant is constructed of unmarked, but acid tested, 14 karat gold. I particularly love the way the back side echoes the form of a daisy to provide support for the pearls. The pearls have not been x-rayed to confirm that they are natural, however this piece of jewelry pre-dates the use of cultured pearls so they are presumed natural.

SIZE: 1-1/2" diameter

MARKS: none

AGE: circa 1900

CONDITION: very good antique condition. There is a tiny bit of glue on the back side of one pearl petal, indicating that it has been re-glued at some time in its history. There are a few tiny nibbles where the pearls attach to the center of the flower, which may be original to their form, or may be wear.
