1 7/8" wide x 1.5" high pendant. About 3/8" thick in depth in the middle of the pendant, tapering to the edge to about 1/4" thick. Oval, but slightly irregular. There is some sort of mark on one of the edges on the back. The metal surrounding it has a 925 or 928 stamp-- metal looks slightly irregular
I found it at a large antique (and used items) pavilion that has dozens of booths rented by individual vendors.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
It is a beautiful silver mounted necklace with an amber pendant. Such amber pendant necklaces are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
The mark 925 is for sterlingsilver which is the best silver quality. The amber in the pendant has been polished which makes the natural variations of the amber stand out very clearly and beautifully. Your necklace has a modern look to it and was probably made in the last half of the 1900s. Demand on these necklaces may vary according to the colour of the amber and the way they are mounted in a piece of jewellery
For the last few years we have seen large chunks of amber selling at high prices, however these are rough and unpolished.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised online auction, where I believe the necklace has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the necklace. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
