Antique 10K Carved Peridot Pendant on 14K Link and Bar Chain
A truly beautiful pendant from the Victorian Period. We estimate this pendant was made between the end of the 1800s to early 1900s. The 10K Gold frame is hand-detailed to catch and reflect light and at the same time focus attention to the carved Peridot. The Peridot is hand-carved with a leaf and flower design. The stone does have a natural fracture, but it does not appear to be surface reaching on the top of the pendant. The pendant measures 22mm x 18mm without the bail and weighs 2.4 grams. The 14K Gold Link-and-Bar Chain is a later addition to the pendant, but complements the pendant nicely. It is 16 inches in length and weighs 3.4 grams. Total weight of pendant and chain is 5.8 grams.
A beautiful and rare item for your collection of fine jewelry.
