This is an amazing pavé set natural split pearl and turquoise heart shaped pendant. The pearls are all evenly matched and are interspersed with smaller turquoises. The combination of pearls and turquoise was commonly used as it represented affection and devotion. The turquoise meant “Forget me not” after the flower of the same name . On the reverse is a locket section. It was made circa 1900-1910.
