A survivor from days (or perhaps nights) of old, a glittering and glamorous jewel from the late Georgian period. Dating to around 1820's, the delicate mauve of the Amethysts and pale ghost green of the Chrysoberyls were colours immensely fashionable expressing the romantic spirit of the time. The whole setting has been carefully made to hold the precious gems, and worn on a short chain, this is a stunning antique and rare jewel which creates the most beautiful effect.
The whole is mounted in gold and we should mention that two of the small Chrysoberyls have been replaced with Paste gems. Measures 7cm by 5cm.
