An antique lavalier necklace (c. 1880), whose feather-form pendant is set with old cut diamonds. This pendant is made with a silver top, and a 14k rose gold reverse; setting diamonds in silver was standard practice, before platinum came into regular use in the jewelry industry, and before white gold alloys were created. This pendant resembles a peacock's feather, and it's eye is set with four old mine cut diamonds.

A rose cut diamond is bezel set above the feather's eye, and further rose cut diamonds decorate the pendant and the moveable bail. Textural details abound, along with a series of curls we find especially pretty. The very fine 14k chain is white gold and is a later replacement. This is necklace has a strongly northern/eastern European quality, and the early, esoteric hallmarks are for Latvia.
