Austro Hungarian Golden Topaz Pearl Pendant 1800s
Outstanding Victorian antique Austro Hungarian pendant featuring natural Imperial topaz gemstones and natural creamy white pearls, circa late 1800s. The faceted and flat topped deep yellow orange topaz gemstones are band wrapped and set in a gold gilded silver filigree mounting with large natural pearls as accents. Even the back of the pendant is ornately designed which is synonymous with Austro Hungarian pieces of this era. A truly splendid piece of antique jewelry that would look beautiful suspending from a long silk ribbon cord!
