Etruscan 14k Coral Natural Pearl Lavaliere Necklace NR
- Source: eBay
This lovely and elegant piece dates to the Turn of the Century and classifies into either the Beaux-Arts or Neo-Renaissance of c. 1905.
The tapered bail to the pendant is central to the piece and is hand traced in an Etruscan scroll motif. The body of the pendant has a bezel set carved Mediterranean Coral rose in a millegrained mount with a 3 mm natural pearl in the center. From the bottom of the mount t are five rings, each supporting a dangling chain link with 2-4 small natural seed pearls each, with a carved coral teardrop dangling at the end of the central link. The result is a classic symetrically tapered look. The back of the pendant mount is open and the reverse of the coral rose has a hole drilled in it. The pendant measures 1 1/2" long and 1/2" wide at it's widest.
The chain is of very fine oval link with a spring ring clasp that is marked 14k and is 23" long. This chain could very well be original to the piece yet cannot be proven. The entire ensemble weighs approx. 3 grams.
