Antique Edwardian 10k yellow gold glass sapphire paste lavalier pendant necklace accented by a 2.5mm seed pearl and a fresh water pearl drop. The fresh water pearl drop has an unusual squatty shape, but it balances the look of the pendant perfectly. Bezel set blue glass pear shaped cabochon sapphire paste measures 6.5mm x 4mm. The pendant is hallmarked "10K" on the top of the bail as well as maker marked "S" in heart. Measures 1-5/8" including the bail (1-3/8" not including the bail) x 9/16" 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. The pendant dates to circa 1910. Sapphire is the birthstone for the month of September. Best in size and proportion for a woman of petite stature.
