Antique Victorian Seed Pearl and Diamond Lavaliere Necklace 14k Gold
Antique lavaliere pendant with an open design, dating to the Victorian era. A beautiful, floral design set with seed pearls, finished with an old mine cut diamond in a buttercup setting at the bottom of the pendant. The graceful lines of this pendant, with leaf motifs that are a classic part of Victorian-era designs. We're always a fan of old-cut diamonds-- they have a special sparkle and charm! Additionally, the pearls are natural, not cultured as cultured pearls were not available until 1916. Diamond measures approx. 2.54 mm diameter, approx. 0.06 cts. Chain is 20" long, and pendant measures 2" x 3/4". The chain is most likely not original, but it is also solid 14k.
Hallmarked & tested 14k. In good condition, with expected wear for age.
