Antique Pink Topaz and Aquamarine Fringe Necklace
ABOUT THIS NECKLACE
Handmade in the late-19th / early 20th century, pretty pastel hues of pink topaz and aquamarine alternate on hand-fabricated knife-edge fringe in this enchanting Edwardian necklace. 4.50 carats of pink topaz and 4.00 carats of aquamarine are framed by delicately carved prongs, each length of fringe suspended from a link in the chain, allowing the necklace to conform to the shape of the wearer. At some point in its life a newer extension chain was added at the back, bringing the necklace to 18 inches.The fringe ranges from 1/2 inch to one inch long. Singular and sublime.
