A stunning Victorian brooch and pendant set to a cultured pearl necklace. The four strands of beautifully matched pearls are choker length, sitting elegantly on the neck. The centre of the strands of pearls is a magnificent diamond piece that can be worn as either a brooch or a pendant. It features an impressive, dazzling central diamond and is surrounded by a star shaped cluster of further lively diamonds. This gorgeous piece is reminiscent of the pearl and diamond chokers that became popular in the second half of the nineteenth century due to Princess Alexandra of Wales’ fondness for the style.
