Edwardian Asprey Aquamarine Pearl Necklace Original Box

This elegant antique Edwardian aquamarine and pearl necklace was handcrafted by the well known firm of ’Asprey’, in London around 1910. It’s a breathtaking piece with eight aquamarines, one square cut, two pear cuts, and five oval shaped stones, with 25 creamy white pearls patterned among them. The aquamarines weigh approximately 3.49 carats in total. The chain measures 17 inches in length accompanied by a 2.5 inch drop. The necklace is made of 18k gold and platinum and weighs 10.3 grams. There are no marks and it has been acid tested. The original, green rectangle box reads, “ASPREY 166. BOND ST LONDON” and measures 69.5 x 114 x 26 mm.

The square cushion cut aquamarine measures 6.6 x 6.4 x 3.1 mm and weighs approximately .79 carats. The smaller pear cut stone measures 7.7 x 5.3 x 2.4 mm and weighs approximately .48 carats. The large pear cut stone measures 10 x 5.7 x 2.9 mm and weighs approximately .82 carats. The largest oval cut aquamarine measures 6 x 4 x 2.1 mm and weighs approximately .28 carats. There are two oval cut stones that both measure 5.1 x 3.7 x 2.6 mm and they each weigh approximately .27 carats. There are two more oval cut stones that both measure 5.1 x 4 x 2.6 mm and they each weigh approximately .29 carats.

The term, ‘aquamarine’, originates from Latin, and means, ‘water of the sea’. Aquamarines were thought to quicken the intellect of the wearer and make him or her more amiable. I, for one, can’t argue with logic like that.
