Antique Citrine Pearl Brooch Pendant
Jewelers from the 18th through the early 20th century demonstrated ingenuity using a few “tricks of the trade”. One of those clever jewelry designs was having different types of fittings which allowed for wear as a brooch as well as a pendant. This particular pendant brooch circa 1900 still retains its original removable bale.
Set in a 9k yellow gold rectangular collet, a glorious natural amber-hued citrine of an impressive 13 mm by 10 mm boasts an estimated weight of 5 carats. At each of the four cardinal points of the collet a trefoil element with three (3) petite natural freshwater half pearls enhances the symmetry of the pendant.
Suspended from the southern point is a flower form drop consisting of two mabe freshwater pearls bisected by a pair of gold leaves set with two petite freshwater half pearls. This brings the total number of freshwater half pearls to fifteen (including the bale). A modern fine curb link chain of 9k yellow gold accompanies the pendant brooch.
Date: Circa 1900, chain is new.
Measurements: 2-3/16 inches (5.6 cm) in length including bale by 1 inch (2.5 cm) in width. Chain is 18 inches (45.7 cm) in total length. Weight of 6.3 grams (4.0 dwt).
Hallmarks: 375 (9K) on the chain.
Condition: Excellent; a bit of old glue or resin on tiny pearls if viewed with magnification.
Note: Gemstone weights are approximated by measurement and formula and may vary from actual if removed. All gemstones and diamonds are tested in our gemological laboratory. All metals are acid tested.
