A really rather lovely thing, which I’m struggling to date. Maybe 40s, Victorian revival? Or perhaps an old assemblage - the drop looks early 20c. - perhaps Edwardian. It has me stumped!

The drop is a rich emerald green, set in a plated mount. The mount does show wear when you look closely but the stone itself is in good shape. The balls are almost asymmetric, but I can’t see that there is one missingas there’s no sign on the metal.

I think the gilt beads are metal, as opposed to glass. The fastener is an older bolt ring closure. They’re attached as swags, as you can see.

It does show age but it’s a lovely piece of costume!

Measures: necklace just over 17” total inner circumference
The ‘stone’ is a little over 1/2” not including mount.

Condition: as above. Please see photos for wear to mount on drop.

Will shop in modern presentation box.
