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 has gently worn, adding further depth of vintage character to the piece. The piece boasts three natural Aquamarine gemstones, each have a stunning shimmer and display gorgeous soft blue tones. The stones 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 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 lustrous white seed pearls. The original 9ct gold trace-link chain attaches to either end of the pendant, and a barrel clasp fastens securely at the back. The lovely design and workmanship is reminiscent of early Australian pieces.

Total length of the necklace is 40cm, and pendant drop is 6.70cm.

A feminine and radiant piece, perfect for a bridal occasion, or just as nice worn with a blouse and jeans!
