Victorian 14kt Turquoise Crescent Pendant Necklace
A gorgeous turquoise crescent necklace from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This exquisite crescent moon pendant adorns 13 graduating turquoise stones, bezel-set in a 14kt rosy yellow gold setting. The turquoise stones are simply magnificent in color with hues of green and blue. The piece, which was most likely originally a pin, has been converted to a pendant, with 2 small rings resting at the top where the chain attaches. It is connected to a modern yellow gold chain that is stamped "14K" at the clasp. A real beauty, this unusual and stunning piece would look lovely worn alone or with other complimentary pendants!
Measurements: The crescent moon measures slightly more than 1 1/8” tall, 1 1/8" at the widest point and has a depth of 1/8". The chain measures approximately 17" long.
Condition: The overall condition of the crescent necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold or chain and all of the turquoise stones are intact. The clasp is secure and in good working condition.
