Turquoise Egyptian Revival Pendant Necklace

Keep it simple with this pop of color! From the Walters Art Museum’s collection, this adaptation pendant necklace features a genuine turquoise cabochon with a 22K gold-plate granulated setting. Adaptations of ancient jewelry became very popular in the mid 19th century. The Castellani workshop in Naples, which Henry Walters visited in 1909, was famous for this style of jewelry. This pendant features a chain measuring 18 inches long with a crab-claw clasp. As these are natural semi-precious stones, no two stones are alike and may vary slightly in color.
