Antique Victorian 9ct Yellow Gold & Ruby Lavalier Necklace, Pendant, 14K Chain, 18 In. #c631 c632
I present today this stunning antique Victorian lavalier pendant necklace! 

This beautiful pendant is comprised of 9ct yellow gold and holds an exquisite ruby stone. The lavalier has a slim openwork drop with a yellow gold ball and two white gold leaves. The bottom drop has an openwork, double diamond shape with a gorgeous, prong-set oval ruby in the center. I have placed the pendant on a fine vintage, 14k yellow gold Prince of Wales chain that complements it perfectly. It is a magnificent gem!

The pendant measures about 1 7/8 inches long and 3/4 inch wide. It is marked "9ct" on the back, although it is difficult to read. The ruby stone measures 7mm by 5mm in size, or 0.76-carat weight. The ruby tested definitely in the ruby range on a Presidium gem tester. The chain measures 18 inches in length. It is signed "FIC" and "14KT" on its attached tag and 14K on the spring ring clasp. The combined weight of the set is 2.5 grams. 

This delightful lavalier pendant is open, airy and with its fantastic pink stone, it's decidedly feminine! The lavalier is of good size, unlike many lavaliers that are extremely small. It's a wonderful piece to add to your antique fine gold jewelry collection and would make an absolutely excellent gift. The lavalier and the chain are both in excellent antique condition and ready to wear. It's a fabulous piece of history that you can wear, cherish and pass down to future generations.
