Large antique Victorian 1880s Etruscan Revival 21k yellow gold European made hardstone sardonyx brooch pin pendant necklace. This large pendant has a nice sturdy weight and feel, with THE ORIGINAL softly frosted "bloomed gold" patina, never disturbed or refinished! The hard-stone sardonyx cameo has lovely detail and is hand carved from one single piece of stone. You can see where the carver oriented the cutting to reveal the natural color variation in the layers that go from a very deep orangy red (the background) to a soft creamy white (the foreground). Etruscan Revival decorations with milgrained bead-work and fine twisted rope accents. There are three elongated teardrops dangling from the bottom of the pendant. Measures 3-1/4" in length x 1" in width and weighs 13 grams. We have included an 18" long 14k chain for the pendant. The condition of the pendant is truly incredible and very well cared for. The cameo shows no chips, nicks, or wear, the gold mounting, and the beads are all in excellent condition. There is a very faint scuff on one of the long teardrops. The clasp works perfectly and securely, the long pin stem itself is nickle (white metal). Typical of the majority of authentic antique Victorian jewels (particularly hand crafted pieces such as this), the pieces are not gold hallmarked, but have been carefully tested by TWO separate independent jewelers to guarantee a minimum 21K gold content and purity. Circa 1880s. High karat Victorian jewels are extremely difficult to find, and we are pleased to be able to present this set in such wonderful condition. WE HAVE THE MATCHING EARRINGS TO MAKE A DEMI PARURE. PLEASE INQUIRE.
