This is a very hard to find complete necklace from Victorian era. On the front, is a pendant in square shape with platinum top, decorated with a shamrock and the leaves are studded with a ruby, a sapphire and a diamond, each about 5 points. All three are of highest quality natural gemstones. There are 4 seed pearls at the corner. The back reveals a crystal hair locket. It has a fine snap on mechanics that you would need a very thin knife to ply it open - according to the jeweler who examined this locket. The square is 14 X 14 mm and dangles from an ornate connector. There is a 4 mm half pearl in the center of the connector. The necklace is finished with a large push in clasp. There are a few hallmarks on the rings near the clasp and one of them appears to be 585. The necklace has been tested as 14K yellow gold and platinum. Total weight is 15.1 grams. Solid but not a burden to wear. Very good condition I see no problems. Necklace is 16.5 inches long.

All sales are final. No returns.
