A very pretty Edwardian 15ct gold necklace that was made circa 1900-1910. It is set with a large oval pink tourmaline and a smaller one above. The gold is two colour. The leaves are a yellow gold and the background is a red gold which gives a good contrast. In between are natural pearls. It is typical of the early 1900s period when the fashion was to wear lace and ivory coloured silk. Light gem stones such as moonstones, aquamarines and tourmalines were used a lot.
