Egyptian Revival Lapiz Lazuli Necklace
PENDANT HEIGHT: .75"
PENDANT WIDTH: 1.25"
This necklace is truly one-of-a-kind and you will not find another one like it! This is an antique piece made from brass and blue lapis lazuli cabochon stones. We are not sure if the stones are real or faux, but we are assuming faux as this is a costume piece. There is a large blue lapis center and a very unique feature is the clasp which connects into the large oval cabochon. The chain is very unique as well...each link is a circular shape with gold leaf details and a small lapiz stone attached into each small bezel. This is the perfect necklace to pair with your Egyptian style or Cleopatra necklace. It is also perfect for 1920's and 1970's looks as Egyptian style jewelry made a huge comeback in each of those eras. Of course it is a beautiful necklace for every day wear and will also look perfect with more formal looks.
CONDITION: This is in great condition. The pendant is in great shape with no cracks or breaks. There are 3 of the small faux lapiz stones missing from links on the chain. The 2 gemstones closest to the pendant are blue but not lapiz "looking". They are more like blue crystal. The previous owner may have replaced missing stones with these...or maybe this was how it came. It would be possible to move one of the gemstones from the back of the necklace to fill in the missing area that are easier to see in the front. 7/10
