Here is such an elegant antique aquamarine necklace made in the 1880's that has such a regal look and feel to it and shows how much detail went into making jewellery all those years ago.
Made in 12ct gold, this necklace originates from Germany and has the beautiful Etruscan work typical of this era and often found in European jewellery.
The delicate detail is just captivating, and then combined with being set with 11 aquamarines, really takes this necklace to a whole new level of sophistication and beauty.
Set with eleven aquamarines that are perfectly match in colour and clarity, the aquamarines have that wonderful pure blue colour that is so prizes and looks magic on the neckline.
Laid out from end to end, the necklace itself measures 40cm in length and from where the gold floral designs are at each end across to the other end one, this distance measures 11cm and finally from the top of the centre piece to the lowest aquamarine, this measures 6cm in length and the proportions of this design make it stand out so elegantly on the neck.
This is truly a magnificent antique necklace and a true testament to the fine quality that was being produced during this time combined with equally fine aquamarines.
