The man showed skill in arguing. His jewels glittered up at me, beckoning with their beauty; one necklace in particular had caught my eye and just wouldn’t let it go. But the man wouldn’t come down in price, just wanted to haggle, to argue. Finally, I shook my head and walked away.
“It’s just too dear,” I said as I was leaving, using the English slang for too expensive.
It was easier to walk away then it was to forget the beautiful necklace, and my mind kept wandering back to it, although I wouldn’t let my feet follow. Twenty minutes later as I stood at another booth eyeing a silver bangle, I felt a tap on my shoulder, I turned around to find the argumentative gentleman holding out the beautiful necklace.
“Okay,” he said, “you win.” And friends, win I did!
So, here it is, just for you, this stunning Edwardian necklace with it’s bohemian feel and mix of rich colors. Set with 12 glowing blue moonstones which add up to a whopping 26.88 carats in total; it also contains 4 spinels, blue and orange and red which total 6.09 carats, 4 zircons in green, orange and golden hues which add up to 11.04 carats, 2 garnets in pink and deep red which are 2.28 carats together and one golden yellow citrine of 1.32 carats. This necklace is truly a cornucopia of stunning gems! The array of gems are set in 15 karat gold with a 9 karat gold engraved flat barrel clasp, measuring just over 15.75 inches long, it weighs 20.4 grams. The necklace has no marks and has been acid tested to verify the gold content. It was hand crafted in England in about 1905.
A chocker fit for a queen, this necklace would make a stunning wedding jewel, but it would be equally killer with jeans and a starched white blouse, or dress up any simple shift in black, blue, red, or gold.
