Exquisite Art Nouveau French 18k Gold Pendant Carved Mother Of Pearl Joan Of Arc
This exquisite pendant piece crafted in 18k gold depicts the courageous Joan of Arc. A symbol for determination and passion and "girl power" to wear and cherish. The center is mother of pearl carved in amazing detail. It bears the image of Joan in profile. She is in armor. Around the edge is the inscription 'Bienheureuse Jeanne d'Arc' – Blessed Joan of Arc. The 18k surround looks like forget me knots with a single pearl hanging from the bottom. The lovely bale is also adorned with forget me knots. This beautiful piece can be dated to approximately 1908 or earlier. In 1909 Joan was beatified by the Pope and was canonized in 1920. The pendant measures 1 1/8" across and 1 3/4" from the top of the bale to the tip of the pearl. It weighs 6.5 grams so is substantial. The condition is pristine. I can find no examples of this quality and am sure in a retail setting it would over $2900
