Victorian 14kt Graduating Turquoise Link Festoon Necklace 16.5"
A beautiful turquoise necklace from the Victorian (ca1880s) era! This lovely and feminine piece is crafted in 14kt yellow gold and comprised of twelve oval-shaped turquoise stones. Seven vibrant stones line the neck of the piece and five additional stones dangle in a feminine festoon style. The stones vary in size and shape but are slightly larger towards the center, creating a dramatic, beautiful look. The turquoise varies slightly in color with deep greenish turquoise hues and natural mineral spider webbing found throughout each stone. A yellow gold chain completes the necklace and a simple spring clasp can be found at the back. It's a wonderful piece that would look great worn day or night!
Measurements: The necklace measures approximately 16.5" long and the center stones drop 1 1/2" in length. The turquoise links range slightly in size with the smallest measuring 3/8" long and 1/2" wide and the largest measuring 1" long and 1/2" wide.
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the turquoise or to the gold setting and chain. The clasp is secure and in good working condition.
