Stunningly pretty antique pendant dating to the early part of the 20the century circa 1910.
Crafted from 15ct rose gold, that hue that is a mix of rose and soft yellow, and almost definitely Australian in manufacture given the style of the 15ct stamp.
Styled with an articulated bale which is set with three graduated natural half seed Pearls which supports the main drop.
Open work with scrolling knife edge bars which are set with various sizes of half round split Pearls to the centre which is set with a stunning natural icy blue Aquamarine in a millgraine bezel setting.
Below the Aquamarine is a millgrain set round Peridot to a then large and beautiful freshwater Baroque button Pearl drop which sways beautifully with movement. We believe the Pearl may be a later replacement but frankly it looks beautiful!
A modern 9ct chain completes this lovey pendant perfectly, she measures a generous 50cm in length, allowing this pendant to sit approximately mid décolletage.

Very very good antique condition. All half Pearls are original, except one tiny one at bottom of pendant, barely noticeable. NO chips to Aquamarine or Peridot. Drop Pearl is possibly a later addition or replacement but looks lovely. Chain is new, in excellent condition.
