SOLD Victorian Flat Cut Garnet Pansy Drop Pendant
A pretty pendant from the Victorian period, c1870s. The pendant is made from a combination of Victorian pieces. The pansy at the top has five lovely flat cut garnet petals and is made from 15ct gold. Hanging from this is another little section with a trilogy of garnets, also in 15ct gold. To the bottom is a lovely pear shaped cabochon garnet dropper. This appears to be set in a lower carat of gold, which I believe to be garnet gold; a low grade gold that was used specifically for garnets during this period. An interesting combination overall that looks beautiful and elegant on the neck.
The pendant will come on a 14kt gold fill chain that is 18" long
