Late Victorian S/S & 14kt French Paste & Faux Ruby Pendant
A fantastic and royal looking French paste pendant from the Late Victorian (ca1900) era! This wonderful piece portrays a French paste encrusted pendant and is made of 14kt yellow gold topped with silver. In the center of the piece is a bezel set vibrant faux ruby which compliments the sparkling paste stone beautifully. The pendant has a closed back and all 49 French paste stones are bezel and prong set within the mounting with a scrolled and cutout design. The pendant hangs from a complimentary bail that holds 5 graduating French paste stones. This lovely pendant is simply a work of art and would make a great addition to any collection!
Measurements: The pendant hangs 1 7/8" long, is slightly less than 1" at the widest point, and is 1/4" deep.
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear there is no apparent damage to the silver topped gold, and all of the stones are intact, bright and clean.
