Antique Edwardian Rhodalite Garnet, Aquamarine and Pearl Pendant in 15k Gold

    When you go to England's antique fairs, it helps to know where to start.  I started this last time in a glass walled building on the southwest corner of the showgrounds at Newark, in the British Midlands.  The sun streaming in the windows gave it an unexpected solar warmth on a day touched with frost. 'The Lady Eastwood Pavilion' at Newark showgrounds on this day contained wonders to behold, and one of the beauties I took away with me on this brisk February morning was this absolutely perfect glistening pendant set with aquamarine, garnets, and pearls, lively as a spring flower!

    Handcrafted in 15 karat gold and platinum, this fantastic pendant is alive with Edwardian style and bright dancing gems.  It is set with four purple-tinged Rhodalite Garnets, each a slightly different hand-cut cushiony faceted oval and two light and bright aquamarine round faceted gems which are set into platinum bezels.  Finishing off this gorgeous pendant are 14 half round pearls, making for a stunningly beautiful pendant that is at once, elegant and substantial.  This pendant measures 42.5 mm long including the bale and the drop and 23.5 mm wide.  It is unmarked but has been acid tested in several spots to verify that all parts are 15k gold and platinum.    Made in England around 1910, this pendant would be equally fantastic on a chain or a simple black cord, with a couture dress or flip-flops and jeans.  It has fantastic movement and is a truly eye-catching conversation starter of a piece!

     The two aquas measure approximately 7 mm x 4.55 mm and weigh about 1.1 carats each or 2.2 carats total.  The four Rhodalite garnets measure 6 mm x 5.8 mm x 2.55 mm or approximately .75 carats each for 3 carats total weight.  The 13 smaller round half cut pearls are 2.5 mm in diameter, a creamy white color, all are well set and well matched and appear to be original.  The top pearl is a slightly larger oval half cut pearl with a slight gray tint that measures 3.4 mm long and 3.0 mm wide.  The pendant weighs 4.1 grams.
