Antique Estate Georgian or Early Victorian Demi-Parure Lavalier Necklace and Pierced Earrings. Sterling Silver and 14K gold with Marcasite and natural pearls. The (white gold) chain is marked 14k and features a spring ring clasp. The chain is a later addition and not an original part of the design.
The chain is the only part that is gold. The white metal throughout the entire set (aside from the 14k chain) tests positive for sterling silver. The rose gold-tone plating on the reverse of lavaliere and earrings did not test positive for gold. The necklace measures 14.75 end-to-end unclasped with 2 lavalier drop length.
The earrings measure 2 length x 0.75 widest point. 5.5-6mm pearls on the earrings, one 7.5mm pearl on the necklace. The total weight is 19.1 grams. Minor wear throughout thats consistent with normal use and age. Moderate patina, surface scratches on the reverse.
The wire thats holding the pearls looks rather makeshift and janky, may need to be repaired or replaced.
