Heart-stopping Victorian 15ct Gold Etruscan Revival Diamond Pendant
Circa 1860's, this is a rare piece and all the more lovely to treasure. In the Etruscan Revival style, drawing influences from ancient history, this delicate lovely has applied wirework and granulation in 15ct gold and silver around the little central rose cut Diamond, and it is a pleasing marquise shape with such a wonderful patina we couldn't bear to clean it up! The graduated 'foxtail' fringe adds delicacy and wonderful trembling movement. This is a most desirable piece for any antique jewellery collection.
Measures 5cm from the top of the bale to the longest drop. A tiny solder repair to the lefthand most drop.
The chain shown in the photographs is not included in the purchase price, but it will be presented on a simple oxidised silver snake chain.
