Vintage Binder Brothers 12K Rosy Yellow Gold Filled Blue Topaz Teardrop Pendant - Signed #d107
This beautiful pendant was created by the Binder Brothers of New York who were in the jewelry business from circa the 1920s through at least the 1970s. The pendant has a wonderful 12K rosy yellow gold-filled finish. It is three-dimensional and has an openwork, double teardrop shape. Three large graduated beads sit at the top of the pendant above a lovely serrated bezel-set, round blue topaz stone. The top of the stone is adorned with leaves or petals that drape down beautifully around it and the stone is open in the back to allow light to reach and enhance its beautiful blue color. The pendant has an attached bail for stringing it on a chain. It's such a striking pendant!

The pendant measures about 1 9/16 inches long, 11/16 inch wide and weighs 2.7 grams. It signed with the letters "BB" inside overlapping circles, which is the trademark of the Binder Brothers and is hallmarked "1/20-12K G.F." on the back of the pendant. The topaz stone is approximately 4.5mm/0.36 carat weight in size. It tested definitively in the topaz range on a Presidium gem tester.

I love the retro styling of this gorgeous pendant! It's rosy yellow gold finish and beautiful blue topaz stone are a stunning combination. It would make a great addition to a vintage jewelry collection and fine gift.
The pendant is in very good vintage condition with normal surface scratches and mild wear from previous use. The serrated bezel of the stone has a few minor irregularities seen with magnification, but it doesn't detract from the beauty or functionality of this fine pendant. It's even more beautiful than my photos can begin to convey and you will not be disappointed!
