A breathtaking choker necklace from the Victorian (ca1880s) era! Crafted in 18kt yellow gold, the necklace has a lovely double-strand woven mesh design. Patinaed sterling-topped and enameled belcher settings hold approximately 1.50ctw of sparkling Old Mine Cut diamonds. The riveted settings create a lovely pattern of larger enameled stars alternating with smaller stars resting atop golden rectangles enhanced by enameled frames. Enameled darts dangle below with lovely motion, highlighting how the necklace graces the wearer's collarbone. The necklace closes with a push clasp with an oval hallmark and an additional chain for security. This stunning necklace would make a phenomenal addition to any collection!
Measurements: The necklace measures a contoured 14.5" in length. The central dangle measures 1 3/8" in length. The mesh strands each measure nearly 1/8" in width.
Condition: There is evidence of repair by the clasp and a belcher setting was reinforced. The repairs are minor and not visible when the necklace is worn. All of the diamonds are intact and securely set. The enamel is intact and in good condition. The push clasp and the safety chain's spring ring are secure and in good working condition.
