The term lavaliere is taken from Louise de La Vallierre, a mistress of King Louis XIV of France in the 1600's, who is credited with introducing the style of pendant: a chandelier type hanging from a simple chain. The simplicity of this arrangement appealed to Edwardian aesthetics and the lavaliere was immensely popular in the beginning of the 20th century. This particular lavaliere circa 1910 shows the influence of the Arts and Crafts movement as well in the graceful angular sweep of its design. Featuring a centerpiece of cornflower blue sapphire paste accented by leaflets set with genuine seed pearls, and a dogtooth baroque pearl suspended from the bottom. It would be a lovely choice for a bride: combining the gemlore of pearls with their symbolic reference to faithfulness, and purity of heart with the traditional bridal requisite "something blue". Crafted in 10k yellow gold with a slight rosey patina. The pendant measures approximately 2 1/2" long from the top of the seed-pearl studded bail to the bottom of the dogtooth drop, and 5/8" at its widest. Hung from an 18" antique 10k cable chain. In excellent condition with a gentle patina. Marked 10k on the back of the pendant. ☆ More Necklaces and Pendants: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheEdenCollective?section_id=13939717&ref=shopsection_leftnav_3 ☆ We are happy to offer layaway.
