We are still obsessed with these fabulous antique lavaliere pendants. Not just because they are so delicate and expertly made by hand but because they are just so attractive.
We just acquired this diamond shape pendant with aquamarine stones.
The diamond shape pendant frame also features a wave-like gold inner frame. Inside is set with a round pale blue aquamarine gemstone with small gold leaves set with seed pearls. The lower part displays a further aquamarine drop. The bale is smooth and shapes like a tulip which is a nice touch.
I have included a 9ct gold trace chain with the pendant.
