A beautiful aquamarine and seed pearl lavalier necklace from the Edwardian era, c1910! The elegant lavalier is made of 9ct gold. The colour is a subdued yellow with warm rose gold highlights where the yellow wash is time-worn, adding further depth of character to the piece. The design and workmanship suggest it was most likely made in Australia. The piece boasts three natural Aquamarine gemstones - each have a stunning shimmer and display a gorgeous soft blue shade. All three aquamarine stones are in superb condition and vary in size and shape; one faceted 11.20mm x 8.10mm oval-cut rests at the top, one 4.70mm faceted round-cut rests at the lower end of the bar and one 11.00mm x 6.00mm faceted pear-cut suspends at the bottom. The three aquamarine stones collectively weigh approximately 4.55 carats, each are set in claw collet settings with a wire-frame surrounding the top and lower aquamarine. A graceful 3-leaf profile and bar suspends from the top pendant, it is adorned with little white seed pearls which have a beautiful luster radiating from the surface. The original 9k gold trace-link chain attaches to either end of the pendant, and a barrel clasp fastens securely at the back. Total length of the necklace is 40cm, and pendant drop length is 6.70cm.
A feminine and radiant piece, perfect for a bridal occasion, or just as nice worn with a blouse and jeans!
