The answer…diamonds, pearls and gold. The question…what materials comprise a breathtaking piece of classic jewelry?
Pearls, pearls and more pearls…to be exact, 75 in total are natural saltwater in origin and of fine quality that each appears to be illuminated from within.
Two old European diamonds are featured, one at the center of the scalloped round drop and one more in the flower shaped midpoint of the necklace. With a total weight of .40 carats, their color is H-I, and their clarity is SI1-2.
Here the earth meets the deep sea with pearls encrusted in a garden of flowers, leaves and tendrils, all in 15k solid yellow gold.
Versatility is one of the more sought after characteristics of a fine piece of jewelry. This necklace typifies that quality. The necklace has a removable pendant that can be worn by itself. Take off the top bale of the pendant and add an alternate drop such as a single pearl or diamond. You can even wear the scalloped round bottom drop without its two pearl bale. The necklace itself has a fold up and down fitting behind the central flower so it can be donned solo, or with another dangle entirely.
This Edwardian antique necklace comes in its original leather, velvet and silk fitted box so when not worn makes an impressive presentation in a display cabinet or on a dresser.
