A fantastic convertible piece from the Victorian (ca1880s) era! Crafted in 15kt yellow gold and topped in sterling silver, the pendant/pin displays an elaborate foliate design, encrusted with glittering Rose Cut diamonds. A lovely coral accent, capped on both ends with a golden design, sings from the pendant. The pendant attaches to the coral beaded necklace with a simple hook bail, held by the c-clasp secured pin. The natural, undyed coral beads from which the pendant hangs have a wonderful orange hue, and their facets gently reflect the light. The necklace is strung on a white knotted silk cord and closes with a 14kt gold push clasp hidden within a matching coral bead. This necklace is a versatile piece that suits any coral lover, and would be a wonderful addition to any collection!
