What a sweet necklace! Pansies have been equated with thoughtfulness, free thinking, and deep contemplation. Thus Shakespeare’s Ophelia said "There's pansies, that's for thoughts." This little pansy is made from (tested) 10k gold, with a modern-looking 14k bale, probably a later addition. The enamel shades from dark yellow through to white, with some dark details, and a (cultured?) pearl center. It measures 1/2” x 1/2”, and the chain is 16’-1/2” and is marked 14k. Together they weigh 1.6g. Just lovely, and in excellent condition. We’re not entirely certain of the age but think it’s pre-1920. The photos are part of the description; please examine them carefully. Thanks! Shipping, handling & insurance within the USA included.
