Shimmering Lights - Edwardian Zircon Necklace
That very feminine and delicate design style we have come to recognize as Edwardian stands out in this antique necklace yet it displays a most modern look. With tiers upon tiers of oval faceted zircons set within 10k yellow gold rims, fine gold chain links form a honeycomb pattern which sensually drapes across the neck.
Heavenly blues zircons varying just slightly are about 5.5 mm by 7.5 mm by 3 mm in depth and are more than 55 carats in total estimated weight. Any subtle movement casts a cascade of light and refraction creating a beautiful warm glow on the skin.
Hallmarks: Clasp is marked “585” for 14k gold.
Measurements: 18 inches (45.7 cm) in length and has a weight of 12.9 grams.
Date: Circa 1900
Note: All gem stone weights are approximate since the stones were not removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting.
