This is an Antique Lavaliere that I bought many years ago. I totally forgot all the information I was told on it. All I know is that its from Europe. Either Austria, Sweden.....not sure...I have never worn this and it sits in my box. If anyone can tell me anything..that would be a blessing...I bought it many years ago with the dealer saying it was gold....lol.

    This one is hard to identify, it's "timeless". The short chains and the "rosettes" on the top and bottom (I hope someone will contribute the proper name to call them) look late Victorian or even Edwardian in style. If the twisted wires around the pendant appear machine made, then the piece is probably not Georgian. If the design on metal under the blue enamel is uniform, it's engine-turned, and therefore, likely to be from around 1900. Your best bet would be to try and identify the marks.

    Looks Swed, can't seem to read the date code ,but here's a link that might help you. http://www.925-1000.dk/Fsweden_Date_Code.html

    This one includes detail on the gold marks, but still not enough detail to nail it to a date/maker, sorry!

    pickrknows, thank you for the info! I will look into it :)))

    Just to clarify/expand my earlier comment: engine-turned decoration has been around for a couple of hundred years (examples can be seen on 18th century Swiss pocket watches) but it's around 1900 and that we start to commonly see it covered with colored vitreous enamel (up to the present day).
    The hexagonal and the trefoil hallmark are Swedish (the trefoil is upside down), S in the hexagon is for Silver, so the pendant must be silver-gilt.
