Gilbert Albert Gold Necklace with Abalone Shell and Keshi Pearl, 1970s


18k gold pendant necklace by Swiss designer Gilbert Albert. The 29″ 18k yellow gold freeform link chain suspending a 3 1/2″ ( with bale) large ovoid polished shell pendant enhanced with a freeform gold bale and Keshi pearl. This lustrous pendant with hues of green pink and cream is almost evokes almost a mystic or dreamlike quality. It is substantial too, approximately 1/8″ thick, it is in perfect condition , no chips … much harder and durable than one would think. It is reversible as well ( gold without the pearl) and looks great on a neckwire. The versatile chain can be worn on its own or layered. A lot of options here!
