Necklace attr. to Bernard Instone*
Silver pendant necklace with gold detail set with a splendid teardrop shaped moonstone and little faceted pink gemstones, possibly tourmalines, interspersed amongst a series of long sweeping leaves and stems.
A closer look reveals tiny gold tendrils curling close by some of the leaves.
The main pendant hangs from a suspender set with a smaller moonstone and enclosed by a similar leafy surround.
Measuring just a fraction below 5.5 cm. long, including the suspender.
The original ornate necklace chain combines perfectly with the decorative pendant and has a length of 45 – 46 cm.
Unmarked but so Bernard Instone that we have no hesitation about firmly attributing it to that maker.
