Old Peruzzi, Florence combination pin/pendant necklace, this is a fabulously worked piece in the shape of a big fleur-de-lis adorned with chasing, beading and set with 6 faceted gems. Having a sage green color the stones register in the spinel area of my gem tester and they look gorgeous against the patina of the silver surrounding them. I have paired it with an old chain which, I believe, provides a good match in age and proportions to the pendant.
Size / Weight: pin/pendant is 2 1/2″ tall by 2 1/16″ wide; as a pendant it adds a 2 3/4″ drop to the chain; chain itself is 17 1/4″ long (wearable; actual length is 17 7/8″); 27.6 grams (for the set)
Hallmarks / Date: “PERUZZI FLORENCE” and “SILVER .800” on pendant; chain unmarked yet tests as silver and is of at least the same purity as the pendant; 1900-1934
Condition: excellent vintage with beautiful workmanship, gorgeous gems and fantastic patina
