Here we have a pretty 9k yellow gold pendant. The design is Art Nouveau/Arts & Crafts. It is centered by a dark red garnet, possibly a spessartite. Garnets are the birthstone for January, and were thought to bring travelers safely home. The dangle is set with a blister pearl of a mellow off-white color. There are 3 tiny seed pearls in the main setting. It is hallmarked “9ct”, and the attached chain is marked “375 9k.” The pendant measures 1-5/16" x 7/8", and the total length of the chain with the pendant is 16-3/4". The piece is in excellent condition, but the garnet has a chip on the bottom right edge, shows some abrasion, and has a couple fractures that reach the bottom of the stone. It is stable, though - if a stone survives the setting process, it is fine unless it gets hit hard; also, it’s already lasted over 100 years! Circa 1910. The photos are part of the description; please examine them carefully. Thanks! Shipping, handling, and insurance within the USA included.
