ANTIQUE VICTORIAN OPAL DIAMOND NECKLACE 20CT OPAL 5CT DIAMOND 18CT GOLD CIRCA 1900
An extraordinary Antique Victorian lavaliere necklace showcasing a fabulous star shaped pendant decorated with an array of colourful natural Opals and sparkling old European cut and Rose cut Diamonds.
Opal is a kaleidoscope of rainbow colours shimmering and changing colours with the light. It radiates blues, pinks, greens and an inner orange.
The centre Opal is approx. 3ct alone with a total of over 20ct across the piece. The Diamonds total to around 5ct and range from 0.50ct to 0.08ct. They glisten beautifully in the light with a clarity of SI 1 and H colour.
The gallery is modelled in solid 18ct Yellow Gold and branches out into the 18ct Gold chain with smaller pansy-shaped Opal and Diamond links attached in-between.
It is a truly magnificent piece and boasts some of the finest natural Opals we have ever exhibited.
We recommend you insure for £12,500. We can provide a written Valuation on completion of the sale.
