A lovely piece of historical jewellery to wear and cherish.
White metals were all the rage at this time in history as was filigree. Jewellery makers used a Rhodium overlay to keep the pieces shiny and bright and is used today to coat white gold and sterling to keep it bright. (Pure Rhodium is too brittle to use in jewellery) Rhodium is the most expensive metal in the world even out ranking Platinum and Palladium. The base metals were usually sterling, white gold or platinum and is unknown unless filed into which would damage the item.
Very good antique condition. Close inspection might reveal age appropriate flaws.
