This is a beautiful example of an early 19th century pendant. It is designed with a central faceted topaz colored stone surrounded
with tiny rose diamonds. The stone itself is a gorgeous color created not only by the stone, but by the foil that is beneath the stone. The use of foil during this design period was used to reflect light and radiance as stones were characteristically closed in the back. This beautiful hue is what is so desirable in early jewelry as the light radiates with every movement.
The setting itself is time intensive and the rose diamonds on the perimeter complete the composition. THe diamonds are set in silver top gold The full setting is 18 karat gold. It has a beautiful, original patina.
It measures 7/8ths inches long with the bail. The pendant alone is 1/2 inch long x 1/2 inch across.
The condition is excellent.
The chain, which is contemporary is available for purchase separately. It is a perfect complement in color and design.
This is easily worn with jeans or that black dress. Layer it with other pendants or wear it alone. It is uniquely lovely.
Circa 1820
