A beautiful antique aquamarine and seed pearl conversion necklace from the elegant Art Nouveau era, c1908! The antique pendant necklace is made of 9ct gold and the colour is a lovely warm antique rose hue with yellow hint to both chain and pendant. Originally an antique brooch, this lovely piece has been repurposed and converted into a pendant necklace, making it a stylish and unique piece for modern day wear. The stunning curvilinear design pendant is highly characteristic of the opulent Art Nouveau aesthetic. Two aquamarine gemstones dazzle from the centre of the design, each resting in claw collet settings. The top stone is an oval-cut and the lower stone, which suspends and sways from a small ring, is a tear-cut which complements nicely in the design. The stones have wonderful saturation of ocean greenish blue shades, and collectively the estimated weight is 0.75 carats. Two lustrous seed pearls rest either side in collet settings, adding extra design. Attaching at either end is a smooth antique trace chain which melds beautifully with the pendant. A recent 18ct gold bolt ring clasp fastens the necklace together, stamped '750'.

The pendant bears a set of English hallmarks to the reverse; '9' '375' 'Anchor' (Birmingham) "i" (year 1908), also makers marks which are difficult to decipher, albeit possibly ending with 'A&S'.

This one of a kind necklace merges seamlessly into present-day fashion, and is sure to receive compliments whilst wearing. Perfect for day or night wear, layered with others or by itself. Ideal for the aquamarine lover!
