Sunny Georgian Period Citrine Necklace

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Citrines are happy stones. This 19th century English gold and citrine necklace has the effect of sunshine on a spring morning. Nine citrines, the color of honey with an added splash of lemon, bring immediate warmth to a woman's features. All stones are open in the back, allowing light to pass through the facets. Cannetille spirals of gold surround the top citrines. Three of the four vertical stones have a twisted gold wire setting with cannetille work at bottom. One central stone is set with twisted wire alone. The jeweler had a light hand and felt that swirls added in this position would be a touch too much. The necklace is original with the exception of the clasp which was replaced. It comes with its original fitted box. The condition is excellent.
