Here's today's offering. A beautiful "Art Deco" style sterling silver pendant with pearls and a large tear drop shaped Mother of Pearl drop. The drop is translucent. The light passes right through it from the open back. I'm fairly sure the slightly lumpy pearls are real and it's definitely silver. It carries a .925 mark on the clasp and on the back of the half pearl just above the drop. There are also some letters "JGD" with the copyright symbol next to it. -Mike-
Note: Well, this appears to be a recent piece by Jancie Girardi (Designs) Sterling Silver. Thanks to davyd286 for pointing me in the right direction.
