This pretty silver pendant is very much Georgian in style, with round and square faceted ruby-red garnets in enclosed-back settings amid a scrolling foliate design. The pendant has three main parts, the top two connected with a flat silver link, and a teardrop garnet dangling below.
Pendant size: 4.5 x 2.7cm. The teardrop dangle at the bottom measures 8 x 5mm.
Pendant weight: 4.1g.
The pendant hangs on a fine 17" silver chain of modern vintage.
The piece came to us as a brooch, dangling from the silver bow in the photographs. It is unclear whether the two started out life together, however, as there is some slightly messy soldering on the loop at the centre of the bow and it looks under magnification as though there may originally have been a fixing on either side. So we are selling all the pieces you see in the photos together and you can decide for yourself whether to wear it as a brooch or a necklace!
The reverse of the bow is hallmarked for Chester sterling silver with the date letter E. Also bears the maker's mark R.J.W within a cut-corner rectangle, likely Richard John Wakefield who was working in England at the end of the 19th century.
Bow size: 1.5 x 3cm.
Bow weight: 2g.
In excellent antique condition; the garnets are still nice and crisp and have relatively little surface wear for their age. The piece has been professionally cleaned.
Please examine the photos carefully as they form part of the description, and do feel free to ask if you have any questions.
