This is a finely sculptured pair of 14 karat gold Victorian Wings. This is a signature piece as the wings were converted from a pin to a necklace. The necklace is 15 3/4" long with the central winged piece measuring 1 3/8". The wings are lined at the top with 24 1mm seed pearls. There is an old mine cut diamond in the center that is bright and lively that measure 2mm, below that one additional seed pearl. The detail in the wings is amazing and shows the feather pattern beautifully enhanced by a beautiful patina. The necklace weights 3.4 grams.
It would look beautiful worn alone or as part of a neckmess with a layering of other pieces.
Wing component circa 1890.
