This elegant almandine garnet pendant is Georgian, circa 1820. It is foiled, flat cut, and faceted around the perimeter. The use of foil during this period was to bring a reflection of light to the stone as they were characteristically closed in the back. This foil not only brought light, but added a magnificent hue, so prized in early jewelry. It is close to the color of a ruby, it is that beautiful .
Each stone is set in 9 karat hand crimped collets.
This formerly was the centerpiece of a reviere necklace and I have added a 14 karat gold custom twisted bail to create the pendant.
It measures an impressive 1 1/2 inches with the bail x slightly under 1/2 inches across the bottom garnet.
I have paired it with a contemporary chain which is available separately.
Worn casually with a tee, or for the evening light, it is singularly lovely .
England, circa 1820
