RARE as can be, a fine late Georgian to early Victorian seed pearl jewelry set still intact and in original presentation case, with crown monogram. I've had this set for 15 years or more. Always thought I might find a matching piece to fill that one open spot that appears to have been a large locket or perhaps a hair ornament, but alas, it's time to downsize and so my own stashes of antique jewelry will be hitting market in week and months ahead. Be sure to mark our shop and return to see them all. Museum pieces! One can only find these in museums or finest collector's stashes these days. I haven't seen a set this complete and elegant, wearable, for many years. Do not miss this one!
