Antique Diamond Navette Necklace, Circa 1900s
ABOUT THIS NECKLACE
All sorts of pretty things going on in this ultra-lovely late-Victorian adornment. Looking like an exotic leaf, this subtly domed navette-shaped pendant is an openwork, multidimensional wonder of wispy scrolls and tiny gold columns, creating a light and lacy design around a flower-like center. A lively .30-carat old mine cut adds a splash of sparkle to this alluring turn-of-the-20th-century/early-20th century jewel. Hand fabricated in glowing 14K gold, it measures just under 1 1/8 by a little over 2 inches. 18K chain measures 18 inches.
