Named after the Duchess Louise de La Vallière, a mistress of French King Louis XIV, lavalier necklaces have been loved and sought after for centuries.
Sleek and sensual, these finely crafted pendants often culminate with a singe pearl or a glistening gemstone drop -- reminiscent of a tear running off the cheek, or a drop of dew on the tip of a leaf.
This wonderfully curvaceous Art Nouveau era pendant is finely crafted in 10k yellow gold and dotted with delicate seed and freshwater pearls.
Mounted in the center of the pendant is a dazzling diamond that glistens in the light in its high setting with floral detailing. Dangling from the bottom of the pendant are three natural freshwater pearls.
It hangs from a new, gold filled chain.
Materials: 10k Gold, Diamond, Seed Pearls, Gold Filled Chain

One of the seed pearls may have been replaced. Diamond has an inclusion that is only visible under intense magnification. It does not affect the sparkle.
Cleaning and Care
Clean gently with warm soap and water and a soft bristled brush. Do not immerse pearls in any type of cleaning solution. It will ruin them. Lightly polish with a jewelry polishing cloth, if desired.
