Antique Edwardian Aquamarine 9ct Yellow Gold Lavaliere / Pendant Circa 1910

She may be 110 years old but this beauty is so current and wearable today.
Elegantly styled with a circular openwork motif set to the centre with a faceted 5mm diameter Aquamarine and accented with four dainty seed pearls to the surround. Suspended by an open work navette drop to which atop sits another small faceted Aquamarine measuring 3.5mm.

The trace chain is beautifully made and very solid, not thin and fine like some, and has a very secure push-in barrel clasp which is very tight and secure.
Handcrafted from lush and bright 9ct yellow gold and in just lovely condition.

History of Lavaliers
A lavalier  or lavaliere or lavalliere is an item of jewellery consisting of a pendant, sometimes with one stone, pendulous and centered from a necklace.
The style was popularised by the Duchesse de la Vallliere a mistress of King Louis XIV of France.  A lavaliere can be recognised most for its drop, usually consisting of a stone and/or a chandelier pendant, which is attached directly to the chain, not by a bale.
