A superb Georgian fob of yellow, pink and green 18k gold decorated with symbols of abundance in high relief: bunches of grapes, squash (eggplant?), flowers, seashells and foliage are cast in gold and set with a sumptuous foiled back facetted Siberian amethyst. A very fine example of this type of Georgian jewelry, the French hallmarks (ram’s head) date from 1819 to 1837. The stone is clear, with great depth of color. In overall excellent condition, there is some wear to the high points of the decoration from having been worn and handled over the years.
Dimensions: The stone measures approximately 18mm x 15mm in length and width. It is estimated to weigh approximately 13 to 14 carats. Total gross weight is 15.3 grams. Overall dimensions, not including the extra added rings, are nearly 1 ½ ” high x 7/8” x ¾”
