This exquisite, Edwardian heart pendant/pin is marked for 15 carat gold. It is ornamented with seed pearls.
It measures 1½” (3.6cms) long, including the bail, by 7/8” (2.3cms) across the widest part. It weighs 3.7 grams.
This lovely heart bears a central flower with trailing stems which hold tiny buds and leaves. Some overlap the heart frame in true Art Nouveau style. This movement coincided with the Edwardian period. The flower has a larger central pearl and then smaller seed pearls forming the petals. Seed pearls are set in all the other elements.
At the top is a loop to which a pretty pearl set bail is attached. This bail can be lowered if being worn as a pin.
On the reverse is an old style c clip which holds well. The centre is marked ‘15ct’ for 15 carat gold.
In fine antique condition, this most lovely and versatile piece would make a wonderful, romantic gift. It will arrive carefully presented in a gift box.
