Antique Edwardian 10k gold filigree glass ruby paste lavalier pendant necklace. Yellow gold fine filigree work with applied green gold leaves. Bezel set red glass ruby paste measures 7mm x 5mm. The pendant is hallmarked "10K" on the top of the bail. Measures 1-5/16" including the bail (1-1/8" not including the bail) x 1/2" and weighs 2 grams. We have added a brand new 18 inch long 10k yellow gold fine curb link chain with spring ring clasp. Clasp is also hallmarked "10K". In excellent condition, very well babied. There is a chip on the back of the glass. It cannot be seen from the front at all. It is the original stone to the mounting and really faces up beautifully. The ruby red color is very vibrant and highly saturated. The pendant dates to circa 1910. Ruby is the birthstone for the month of July. Best in size and proportion for a woman of petite stature.
