A charming souvenir from the fabulous fifties - as in 1850s!. California gold mining was hot and exhausting work, even for the ladies back in town. This very lovely fan necklace was designed to keep the wives' cool. A unique and very wonderful and wearable collectable. Hand fabricated in 14K yellow gold and inlaid with a nice specimen of gold-in-quartz. It measures 1 3/8 by 7 1/16 inches, the new chain measures 18 inches.
