The Wellesley Girl - SGD 105 - Sold

A simply yet breathtakingly beautiful necklace.

This gorgeous large amber citrine pendant focal was part of a pair of vintage earrings I found at an antiques specialty arcade in Tetbury, England - located within the very, very, very old Cotswolds and also home to Highbury Grove, the country home of the Prince of Wales aka Prince Charles. (No we did not spot any royalty but we did patronise their official grocer.)

The earrings in mention date back to the 1950s or earlier and is stunningly bright with the bouquet detailing and smaller rhinestones surrounding the larger emerald-like cut amber crystal. The chain portion has been kept simple with antiqued-brassy filigree connectors and rondelles of hessonite, citrine and garnet with golden autumn pearls. Still can't believe how pretty this is!

This necklace measures approx. 18" in length with 14k gold-filled wirework and lobster clasp closure.
