The pendant is suspended from a contemporary 18 ct yellow gold 45.72cm/18″ trace chain via a detachable diamond set bale attachment to the upper portion of the frame.

This versatile pendant is fitted with an integrated hinged pin and security clasp to the reverse to allow it to be worn as a brooch if so desired.

The upper portion of the frame is hallmarked with the Russian mark for 14ct gold (56 zolotniks, in addition to a Kokoshnik mark; this variation of the Kokoshnik mark was used for Russian items between 1898-1908, determining the date of this piece as circa 1900.

This 1900s emerald pendant necklace has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 14ct yellow gold and silver.

“Rather than regarding inclusions in coloured stones as harmful, in small sizes and numbers that do not in any way detract from their beauty, they should be regarded as adding to desirability, for they provide identifying characteristics.”
