I purchased this exquisite pendant as Victorian. It tests as 9 carat gold with seed pearls and a lovely amethyst drop. The reverse bears two marks. One I can make out as the leopard’s head for the London assay office but the other is really indistinct. I have concluded that it is a vintage rather than an antique piece.
It measures 1½” (3.7cms) long, including the bail, by 11/16” (1.8cms) across the bow. It weighs 3.1 grams.
At the top is a pretty bail set with a seed pearl. It holds a delightful, pierced bow set with tiny seed pearls. From this hangs a beautiful , violet amethyst drop, delicately claw set , and open backed for wonderful light reflection.
The reverse is smoothly finished and bears the marks referred to above.
This romantic piece would make a very special gift. In excellent condition, it will arrive in a gift box,
