Pretty and feminine seed pearl jewellery was usually gifted for the occasion of a wedding in the Victorian England around the turn of the 19th and 20th century. Necklaces in rich, yellow gold studded with creamy, lustrous pearls formed traditional bridal suites. They usually contained detachable pendants which could be hung as drops for a richer, fuller look or worn on a fine chain and even as brooches. The better quality suites were crafted in 15 carat gold and sometimes incorporated diamonds into their design. The smaller, cheaper versions were made in 9 carat gold.
Our fabulous pendant here is a lovely example of such a Victorian piece of a superb quality. It is hallmarked 15ct for 15 carat gold and features a traditional floral design. The seed pearls are wonderful, creamy , lustrous and beautifully matched. The centre is set with a bright, white and sparkly old mine cut diamond, estimated to weigh 0.2 carats. There is a brooch fitting at the back and a fully detachable pearl studded bale, which folds down neatly to the back. You can either take it off to wear the piece as a brooch or simply let it drop to the back. It measures 1.3 by 1.3 inches and is 1.8 inches long including the bale. It weighs 8.7 inches. The pendant is in as fantastic condition as it is quality. Crisp and perfect, it must have spent most of it's 130 years stores safely away. Time for it to sparkle and gleam in the sun !! Please note that this listing does not include the chain featured in our photos.
We love ...... the classics when they are as fine a quality as this. It is lovely have the best of the best....is it not ?
