Victorian Coral Strawberry Double Lavaliere Necklace
ABOUT THIS NECKLACE
A pair of sweet and luscious three-dimensional vermilion-colored coral strawberries swing and sway from long glittering diamond-set ribbons and bows in this utterly stunning, rare, ravishing Victorian lavalière necklace. Hand fabricated in silver over 15K gold (hence, more than likely of British origin), the 2 1/2 inch long double dangle sparkles up and down with an array of old mine and European cut diamonds. A singular sensation. Total diamond weight, 1.25 carats. Circa the late-19th century. Formerly a brooch, it now suspends from a newer darkened silver chain measuring 18 inches.
