Deco PERUZZI Italian 800 silver and gems PIN / PENDANT NECKLACE Renaissance Revival fleur de lis design

on Aug 5, 2014 in archived


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.

Simply elegant…


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
