A sapphire cluster fringe necklace, composed of flowerhead cluster links of claw set mixed-cut blue sapphires, suspending a fringe of matching graduated drops, necklace length 40cm. £3,000-£4,000

Condition Report

The sapphires are well matched, lightish mid blue, showing some light surface wear. The piece is Sri Lankan in origin. The mount is gilt, probably silver gilt; there is a stamp to the clasp of ‘18k’, but we assume this refers to the gold plating, slightly basic construction. Average cluster diameter 14mm.
