I PRESENT FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION THIS:

Magnificent & RARE AUSTRALIAN Hallmarked Antique VICTORIAN 9ct Gold-AMETHYST Lavalier Articulated Necklace-By Joseph Lawrence Pty Ltd, Melbourne.

This lovely Australian Made Victorian Period Lavalier Necklace is in excellent condition. It was made by Joseph Lawrence Pty Ltd, who were active from c1890 and resided in Elizabeth House, Melbourne. Pieces made by this Australian maker and of this quality do not come up very often.

This is a beautiful piece of Australian Jewellery and it is in excellent condition. The pendant section of this necklace is mounted with three beautiful Amethyst. The Amethyst each measure approximately 1cm (3/8") across, with the centre stone being a tiny bit smaller than the top and bottom stones. The top stone connects to the chain, the bottom two are linked by a gold bar and dangle freely from the top stone. The drop of the pendant section of the necklace measures approximately 5cm or 2 inches in length.

The pendant section is set in Rose Gold and the chain is slightly less Rosey. The length of the necklace is 39cm or 15" & 3/8" inches, this is a normal length for a Victorian necklace. This can easily be lengthened by a jeweller, I have other Victorian necklaces that I have had lengthened very successfully and I have always kept the original clasps.

This necklace was shown to my jeweller who believes the stones are natural amethysts, however I have not had them tested. The value of the necklace would be unchanged. If you would like more photos, please message me and I will email them to you.

The Hallmark on the back is easily identifiable as Australian. The necklace was made by Joseph Lawrence Pty Ltd of Elizabeth House, Melbourne, (Active from c1890). The necklace is Stamped with the Knot - which is the mark for Joseph Lawrence; followed by a "9" (for 9ct); and a sheath of Wheat, the standard for 9ct Gold. You can see this in the last photo. The barrel clasp on the necklace is also stamped with a single "9" for 9ct Gold.

* This lovely Antique necklace is 9ct Gold and stamped with an Australian Hallmark underneath the bottom Amethyst - please see last photo.
* The Hallmark consists of the Knot; Next is the number 9 for 9ct gold; then the sheath of Wheat. This is the hallmark of Joseph Lawrence Pty Ltd of Melbourne.
* The necklace is mounted with what I believe are three lovely Amethysts mounted in Rose Gold. They each measure approximately 10mm or 1cm (3/8") across. The centre stone is slightly smaller than the top and bottom stones.
* The top stone is fixed to the chain and the two lower stones are connected by a rose gold bar and dangle freely.
* The chain, which is attached to the pendant, is the original chain. The clasp is also original, it is a round shaped barrel clasp. The necklace measures 39cm (Approx 15 & 3/8 inches) in length. This is a normal length for a Victorian necklace, but quite short by todays standards. Extra chain could be easily added by a jeweller, I have checked with my jeweller and have had chain added to some of my other Victorian necklaces. A manufacturing jeweller should be able to match the chain.
* The drop of the pendant section of the necklace measures approximately 5cm or 2 inches in length.
* The necklace is a Lavalier style because of its drop style, and as it does not have a bale:
A lavalier or lavaliere or lavalliere is an item of jewellery consisting of a pendant, sometimes with one stone, suspended from a necklace.
The style was popularized by the Duchesse de la Vallière, a mistress of King Louis XIV of France. A lavalier can be recognized most for its drop (that usually consist of a stone and/or a chandelier type of drop) which is attached to the chain and not attached by a bail.
•The Pendant is stamped for 9ct gold at the base of the bottom stone. It is also stamped "9" for 9ct on the barrel clasp.
•The chain is original and in very good condition. The clasps is the original barrel clasp and it is in excellent working order. There are no repairs or damage to the chain or the clasp.
•This Necklace will come in the quality gift Box pictured or one similar.

This Lovely necklace is from my personal collection, which I am down sizing.

THIS IS A FANTASTIC ORIGINAL ITEM. IT IS IN GREAT VINTAGE CONDITION AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PHOTOS.
I have described this item to the best of my ability and it will be sold as it is. The photos form part of my description so please look carefully. If you have any questions please email me and I will endeavour to answer them in a timely manner.
