925 - Large Vintage Citrine & Garnet pendant on necklace
Size: 18" chain x pendant 2" long x 1" wide - Total weight: 23 g

I have no idea where to start with the description of this pendant, it has so much going on and contains the largest gemstone i have ever auctioned. The lemon citrine is huge. It is centered in the middle of the design and is so eye catching. The gemstone is 15.5 carats in size. Citrine is said to bring strong energy to the wearer and have great healing powers.
The only difference between Citrine and Lemon Quartz is in the saturation and tone of their colour. Many gem dealers do not even separate the two and use the name Citrine for all yellow Quartz. The gem looks vibrant when set into yellow gold; however, it really steals the show when set into either silver or white gold.
The design is complimented by an oval cut deep red almandine garnet which is nearly a carat in size. The silver scrollwork has two carved ducks separating the garnet. The pendant is suspended on a snake chain.
2 inches long x 1 inch wide pendant. Hallmarked silver on pendant and chain
