Vintage 18ct Yellow Gold Emerald and Diamond Necklace
A truly incredible v-shaped necklace, about 20 years old, and made from solid 18ct yellow gold in a nod the jewellery designs of the late 1960s. The necklace features a beautiful pear shaped emerald surrounded by a dazzling display of VS clarity, F-G coloured diamonds attached to a solid 18ct foxtail chain. The emerald has a beautiful hue and the whole necklace is fantastically well made. It's slightly longer than a choker, but is designed to sit high on the neckline to be shown off.
We have hallmarked this item (since it's a legal requirement on jewellery of this age), but the necklace is vintage and has not been made by Kit Clayton Jewellery despite now carrying our maker's mark. Important note: like most emeralds on the market, this stone has likely been treated with oil and this necklace should not be placed in an ultrasonic cleaner. This stunning emerald necklace is supplied in a vintage green velvet jewellery box along with an independent jewellery report for your piece of mind.
