Glorious Etruscan Revival Cabochon Garnet Locket Pendant


The joy of antique jewellery is the diverse nature of the pieces which over a lifetime of collecting can be found, but we've never seen such a glorious piece as this. Circa 1860's, a tribute to Bacchus, this antique Victorian era Etruscan Revival style pendant is fit for a Bacchante, adorned as it is with the most beautifully hand fashioned vine leaves, all in a rich 15ct yellow gold cradling a wonderful rich burgundy coloured oval shaped cabochon Garnet (which features an unusual and captivating star asterism), all framed with a twisted rope design.

A unique piece which displays a very distinctive historical charisma, this is a jewel for a special occasion. Entirely hand crafted, from every angle there is beauty and interest. The reverse is home to a locket compartment in which to keep a precious scrap of fabric. The pendant measures 2.5cm by 2cm and hangs from an antique 9ct yellow gold rope chain with a lovely barrel clasp which echoes nicely the design of the pendant.
