This is an unusual Cannetille style Heart Pendant that I believe dates to the Edwardian Era. 14K DEEP Rose Gold heart features 3 tiny open loop flowers constructed from beaded edge wire. At the very center is a petite Salmon Coral Cabochon firmly set in a 'pinched' bezel - similar to a collet setting.
Antique Heart MEASURES ~ 3/4 Inches in Both Directions (excluding the large soldered loop at the top for a pendant chain) and is Hallmarked on its integral loop. Part of the Hallmark is illegible -has been professionally acid tested and I GUARANTEE it to be 14 Karat Gold. Filigree Heart Pendant is in VERY GOOD CONDITION! ...has not been cleaned ~ polished - retains old patina that attests to its age. Difficult to notice except under magnification, there is one tiny gold bead (center of a flower) that has been missing for a long time. LOVELY Gift for a SPECIAL someone... adult or child - could even be attached to a charm bracelet.
Coral was long thought to be a strong talisman against bleeding, evil spirits, and hurricanes. The Victorians believed it would ward off sickness.
