Description : Antique Vintage pendant. Strong statement with bold, rectangular design as seen in the late Deco - early Retro period. Rectangular in shape with strongly slanting gold mount leading to an emerald cut aquamarine gem centerpiece. The gold, with matching gold bale (loop), is etched with a floral and beaded gold theme. Each side of the sloping rectangle has a subtlely raised strap of gold with a smaller version of the floral design. These pseudo straps lead to the gold prongs that hold the aquamarine in place. The light blue aquamarine is a lovely example of a nice, clear quality......with no inclusions or distractions within the gem. to see what Duane says and photos show. The simple geometric facets allow for a pretty play of light between light blue and dark shadow. The back is a sturdy gold frame.
