I bought this from an antique shop a few weeks ago because I really love this shade of blue, as well as the old push in barrel clasp chain.
The seller said it is a European piece and the stone is paste.
I will try to describe the construction of this pendant.
It is made in 2 sections by the look of it with one bezel holding the top of the stone and a second bezel underneath holding the base of the stone, if that makes sense!
The top bezel is marked Sterling Silver . 927, which is curious in itself and I have not been able to identify this!
The bottom bezel is marked METAL.
The stone is faceted on the outside edge only on the front, but on the back is fully faceted which makes the pendant really sparkle.The back is not flat at all.
Would very much like to hear your thoughts or ideas on this please as I haven't been able to find anything similar at all! Thanks, Judy
