Vintage Large Faceted Italian Carnelian Pendant
When dealing in estate, vintage and antique jewelry there's no telling what will come along next. This is a great case in point.
A very fine vintage Italian made Red Carnelian pendant mounted in a 14K gold frame. This is a rare piece on several levels: excellent finish with highly polished front and back, excellent translucency, and very even texture. They're all here. And the checkerboard faceting is especially nice. The color, too, is remarkable - closely resembling Ruby Red.
We mention that this is a large pendant, which it is, measuring 32.5mm in diameter. It suspends beautifully from a 16 inch rope chain in 10K gold. The pendant has a weight of 11g and the chain has a weight of 2.86 grams.
A unique piece that everyone will ask about and compliment.
