I suspect this beautiful little bauble might once have been the drop of an earring. It's lovely on its own now as a pendant, as you can see, and it does test 18k gold so definitely worth salvaging. I don't do so much with jewelry these last years, and am really just clearing things out. I never did get around to having it evaluated. I suspect it's paste stones, mid-1800s French, but I suppose with it being 18k, there's a plausible chance that the stones might be emeralds. I'm not pricing as if, just clearing the jewelry crates.
Very good to excellent condition, consideration that it is probably a piece from some grand parure. But a very pretty piece it is! I've worn it on a delicate 18k gold chain. The measurements are noted on the photos. The gold is relatively thin, beautifully crafted. As noted, I suspect it might have been a drop to a set of Victorian era earrings. A bit of a mystery piece I bought ages ago in London.
