Victorian 15kt Turquoise Festoon Necklace
A beautiful turquoise necklace from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This lovely and feminine piece is set in 15kt rosy yellow gold and comprised of 39 vibrant turquoise stones of various sizes and shapes. Eleven stones line the neck of the piece and 28 additional stones dangle in a draped, festoon style. The stones vary in size and shape but are slightly larger towards the center, creating a dramatic, beautiful look. The turquoise is a brilliant blue color with natural mineral spider webbing throughout. A gold chain completes the necklace and clasps in the back at 2 different clasps, allowing the wearer to wear the piece at 16.5" and 18" long. It's a wonderful piece that would look great worn day or night!
Measurements: The necklace can be worn at 16.5" or 18" long. The center stones drop 2 3/8" long from the chain to the bottom of the necklace.
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. There is no apparent damage to the turquoise or to the gold setting or chain. The clasp (which is a modern clasp) is secure and in good working condition.
