Absolutely Gorgeous Opal and Pearl Pendant 18k c. 1910
My heart was racing when I was photographing this magnificent pendant, it literally takes my breath away! This Edwardian era pendant c. 1910 holds six of the most beautiful crystal opal cabochons that I have seen in a long time, set in 18k golden yellow gold with pearl accents--all so expertly set in hand-millegrained bezels. It is exactly what I talk about when I say that antique jewels are miniature works of art. There is a mystical, cosmic quality to a fine opal, looking at one evokes a faraway planet or nebula. This little cluster of galaxies is ready for your neck--opal lovers, if you can come see this one in person!
Not stamped or signed but acid-tested for 18k. Measures 2 1/8 x 1.00". Opals measures 7 x 5mm. One opal chipped at edge near bezel. All pearls original. Weighs 5.6 grams. Comes with an 18" gold-filled rolo link chain.
