It weighs 6 grams so it pulls down, I didn’t know if something like this would look good it’s so hard when you can’t see it in person 6AB88B27-06A3-429C-8350-F958D5F79268.jpeg

My usual jeweler isn’t open yet, but that is my best bet. I did buy a antique 10 k curb chain with dog clip on eBay for a good price. I hope it works*fingers crossed*

Thank you!
She doesn’t have any hallmarks, I think she was a hat pin then in the 60’s turn into a brooch on a large bar. My husband had the seller take her off the brooch and turned into a pendant. I love her!

Did you contact the seller to see if they knew more? These look like close cousins. Did you see the spring wings on that? Pretty amazing.

ETA, I suspect if they knew more it would have been in the listing on 1stdibs.

This is such a lovely piece! Excited to see it set once your jeweler opens up again

To answer your question, I think you want a chain that isn't articulated -- maybe like a snake chain? Does not go with the vintage but you need a chain that won't bend in an acute angle so there is a graceful curve where the pendant hangs.
