Victorian 9kt Turquoise Festoon Necklace
A beautiful turquoise necklace from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This lovely and feminine piece is set in 9kt rose gold and comprised of 18 round and oval shaped turquoise stones. Thirteen vibrant stones line the neck of the piece and 5 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 from bright blue to deep turquoise and natural mineral spider webbing can be found throughout each stone. A rose gold chain completes the necklace and a simple toggle 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 20" long and the center stones drop 1 1/4" in length. The turquoise ranges slightly in size with the smallest measuring 3/8" long and 1/4" wide and the largest measuring 1/2" 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.
