Antique 9k Yellow Gold Lavaliere Necklace with Seed Pearls, Amethysts and Demantoid Garnet Stones
A delicate beauty, this lavaliere style necklace features the purple and green colours of the suffragette movement during the early 1900s.
The bow on top features seed pearls and a green demantoid garnet with independent movement from the lower piece. This creates a beautiful, artistic look and flow of the piece.
The larger bottom section features seed pearls, natural amethysts and green demantoid garnets. There is a jump ring at the very bottom that likely held a drop stone (amethyst to even out the sets of 3 maybe?). This could be replicated or replaced with something the wearer would prefer to add. Right now, only the ring remains, making it easy to attach something else, although it would likely need to be quite light as this piece is delicate.
Era: Edwardian. Circa 1910s.
Markings: No markings.
Stones: Forty-eight round seed pearls measuring approx. 1.0-2.6mm. Creamy in colour to a silvery-white.
Two round old European cut natural amethysts measuring approx. 5.8mm. Total weight of the amethysts is 1.32 carats. Colour is medium, strong, violetish purple. Clarity is eye-clean.
Three round antique cut natural demantoid garnets measuring approx 2.5-2.6mm. Total weight of approx 0.21 carats. Colour is medium, moderately strong, slightly yellowish green. Clarity is slightly included.
Metal: Unmarked but tested by a third party appraiser as 9k yellow gold.
Size: The necklace is 35.6cm long. Total weight of the necklace is 6.04g.
Condition: This is an antique piece with seed pearls, which vary in colour likely due to age. There is likely a drop stone missing at the bottom as the jump ring is still present.
There is a recent third-party professional appraisal that comes with this piece.
This item is used/antique so it has been previously loved. As such, it will show the normal signs of wear in the form of scuffs to the surface or wearing of details.
