A highly unusual vintage Asian pendant, possibly a bespoke piece.
A huge rectangular goldstone sits within a silver gilt roped frame, adorned with a scene of trees and housing in engraved gold, with two tiny claw set red stones to tree centres and two natural claw set opals.
Turn the piece over and you have some Asian lettering (most of the gilding has worn from them so appear silver).
The metal isn't marked but it has been jeweller tested & guaranteed solid silver gilt.
With great sparkle, goldstone is a man made stone of copper infused in glass.
Measurements: 2.25" by 1.1" (including bail).
In good overall condition; there is a corner chip (top left) to front of goldstone (which is a fragile material)..see images. The gilding to bail has also worn.
Extremely striking, very unusual, I have never seen anything else even remotely like it!!!!
All photographs should be viewed for full, clear detail of item on offer and its condition.
Please Note: the photos didn't capture the sparkle of the goldstone in life!
