This antique 15ct Gold Citrine Pearl cluster pendant is the sweetest find! This pendant is inlaid with a sought after 2.90ct honey Madeira Citrine crowned by authentic antique seed Pearls.
We believe that this pendant was crafted in the early 20th century, but was actually hallmarked at a later date. The pendant is hallmarked with 9ct Gold, but she actually tests as solid 15ct Gold. The 15ct Gold purity was discontinued in the 1930s, which is why we think she is actually hallmarked as 9ct. Nevertheless, she is incredibly charming, with an Edwardian flair!

EXCELLENT-VERY GOOD: This antique 15ct Gold Citrine Pearl cluster pendant is in sublime condition. The Citrine is a delicious Golden syrup colour, and the Pearls are the perfect assembly of champagne, Silver and ivory in colour. There is a small wobble within the Citrine setting, but we are confident that she can stay put with if treated with love and care. We can just imagine this fine pendant looking beautiful with a skinny Gold chain!
