Edwardian Sapphire and Pearl Lavalier 10k/14k c. 1910
This pretty pendant was made in the Edwardian era circa 1910 and is designed with the delicate style of that era. The pendant measures 1.75" and is made of 10k yellow gold with natural seed pearls and one sweet and bright little sapphire. It is suspended on a 14k yellow gold box chain that measures 16". Often you will hear this style of pendant described as a lavalier, although technically it is not--but it is such a lovely word to describe a lovely piece! This antique necklace would make an amazing gift, either for a bride or for a special occasion--it has great presence and is also very wearable!
Pendant is in excellent condition with one seed pearl replacement (undetectable except under extreme magnification). Stamped "10k" on the bail and tested. Sapphire is 2.5mm diameter. Chain stamped "14k" on clasp and tested.
