~ 18ct Yellow Gold Sapphire & Diamond Pendant Necklace & Earrings Set ~
A lovely 18ct gold set of a pendant necklace and a pair of matching earrings both set with sapphires and diamonds.
The earrings each feature a single oval-cut blue sapphire and a single round-cut diamond set one above the other in a figure-of-eight shaped gold mount.
They have post backings and butterfly fastenings.
In the case of the necklace the pendant is of a similar design to the earrings. It is suspended from a gold cable link chain and is secured with a spring ring clasp.
There is clearly a makers mark to the chain. The other pieces do have some kind of marks but they are difficult to read, so we cannot say for sure if the pieces have hallmarks. However we have tested the gold and it showed positive for a gold content of at least 18ct.
