Date: c. 1850-70s, mid-Victorian era
Materials: solid 18k gold (pendant / brooch), 14k gold (chain), queen conch shell, Persian turquoise
Weight: 6 grams
Dimension of pendant / brooch: 23.7 x 30 mm
Length of chain: 15 in (I can add an extension chain to the clasp; please let me know what length you’ll require!)
Condition: Excellent antique condition, with some minor age-related darkening to some of the pavé-set turquoise. The brooch pin appears to be added later, and as a result there’s some old solder surrounding the pin mechanism.
