Art Nouveau 9kt Peridot & Seed Pearl Lavalier Pin/Pendant
An elegant lavalier pin/pendant from the Art Nouveau (ca1900) era! This delicate piece is made of 9kt yellow gold and holds a gorgeous bezel set peridot stone in its center. The peridot is faceted with a lively green color and surrounded by a flowing vine-like design. Set within the surface of the gold are delicate natural seed pearls and dangling from the bottom is a single teardrop shaped peridot stone. The entire pendant hangs from a removable complimentary gold bail which is decorated with two additional seed pearls and a simple pin clasp can be found on the back. The underside is stamped “9CT”. The piece has a stunning design and is a magnificent example of Art Nouveau jewelry! It would look perfect worn on a simple gold chain and would make a lovely addition to any collection!
Measurements: Worn as a pendant, the piece hangs approximately 1 3/4" long, is 1 1/8” at the widest point and approximately 1/4" at its thickest point.
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting and the peridots and pearls are all intact. The bail and pin clasp are both secure and in good working condition.
