The photos really don't do this wonderful antique piece justice. Twenty-eight foil-backed round faceted garnets are mounted in typically Georgian balloon-backed crimped-collet settings, giving out deep crimson flashes as they hit the light. You can see a short video clip on our instagram account @corvidaeantique or we're happy to mail you, just ask!
The piece can be worn as a showstopping pendant or an eyecatching pin - there is a pendant loop at the top and a brooch fixing with a locking C clasp which appears to be a useful later addition.
No hallmarks, as is nearly always the case with Georgian jewellery, but tests positive for nine-carat gold.
Size: 5.5cm diameter. The garnets vary in size from approx 4mm to 6mm. Total weight: 12.4g.
Please examine the photos carefully as they form part of the description, and do feel free to ask if you have any questions. Free shipping included.
