Oozing glamour and sophistication, we love this antique Gold opaline and paste fringe necklace! With glittering green and white gems set against solid 9ct Gold settings, this piece will look resplendent with a cocktail in hand.
Picked from the Victorian era, this necklace is rich in antique charm and elegance. Gracefully draping around the neck, the eye-catching jewels glitter, and sparkle in all lighting conditions creating an incandescent display that glows against the skin.
What we also love about this necklace are the crown-like settings in which the gems are clasped. These add an extra touch of opulence to this extravagant necklace, a must-have for your antique jewellery collection!

EXCELLENT: This antique Gold opaline and paste fringe necklace is in incredible condition throughout. Considering that it has survived over 150 years, all of the gems are securely intact and are untainted, allowing its brilliance to fully shine! The antique Gold too has a buttery lustre, perfectly complementing the vivid emerald green hues and milky pearlescent tones of the gemstones. There is some minute evidence of wear on the stubby barrel clasp, as commensurates with its age. Yet, this does not affect the necklaces' overall beauty and the working of the clasp either!
This gorgeous necklace would suit a great formal occasion, or you can simply wear around the house if you prefer!
