1911: Dressing for dinner was always a bit of an affair. She didn’t mind, picking the dress, the hairdo, the gloves, shoes and most especially the jewels. Sometimes she chose the jewels to match her dress, but tonight she would chose a dress to match the wonderful new necklace that her husband had just brought her from London. She chose a high waisted dress in rich blue with a pale embroidered gold overlay and golden silk gloves that went to above the elbow. She had her ladies maid put her hair up high in back and paired the new necklace with the pearl ear bobs that her husband had given her just before they were married. She knew he’d notice, he was just like that, always doing little things to make her happy.
This wonderful pendant has such Edwardian flair. I picture it brand new at an elaborate dinner, the table set with porcelain and candelabras, the wine glasses full, the silverware laid out five places deep on either side of your plate. It’s such a charmer, larger than most and set with five bright sparkling sapphire gems and twelve creamy white pearls. The pattern shows the beginnings of Art Deco geometry sneaking in, but is still squarely Edwardian. Made in about 1910 in England of 15 karat gold, it is marked on the reverse with ’15ct’ for 15 karat gold. The pendant measures 34.2 mm from top to bottom and 25.5 mm across, it comes with the chain that I purchased it with, I don’t know if it’s original but it’s the right period and hand crafted, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they’d been together a long time. The chain is 18 3/4 inches long and is marked with ’15c’ and a makers mark of ‘CDB’. It weighs 8.3 grams.
