Add a long black velvet cord through the large bale and you will be wearing a superb standout piece of jewelry. it is not typical of the large range of cut steel gems. What makes this the most unusual piece we have had is the solid metal plate covering the rivets . Research indicates this is rare and was used in the very finest creations. It was done in order to keep the rivets from catching on the clothing.
Again we are delighted with this cut steel gem. It is free of any rust and the studs are in excellent condition. It is part of a small group of cut steel pieces recently acquired. Each piece is worthy of being added to your collection or the beginning of a new group of early Georgian gems.
The pendant measures 3 3/4 inches in length including the bale. it is 2 inches wide. It weighs 31.4 grams.
