Dating to the 1820's and in 15ct yellow gold wonderfully articulated in three sections, this richly coloured foiled Almandine Garnet beauty would most likely once have been one of a pair of earrings. Nine faceted pear shaped soft pink Almandine Garnets glow with the goldy glisten and sparkle which emanates from their foiled collets between leaves pressed from 15ct gold. All beautifully handmade and inspired by the fashion for Etruscan jewels at the time the style is richly opulent, paired with a later antique Victorian 9ct gold fancy linked cable chain, they flatter each other perfectly. The pendant measures two inches from the top of the bale, and the chain sixteen inches, finishing with a barrel clasp.
