I woke up the other morning, it was later than usual. The day’s light was out and the coolness of winter had settled into the ground. I wore this pendant, round and golden like the sun, a parallelism and beautiful cliché all in one. Gazing out my back-porch windows I saw that the frost had swathed the grasses and drench the leaves in glittering ice crystals. Birds chattered as they perched on the feeders, flirting and racing around, making me laugh, making the pendant that hung around my neck catch the sunlight. It was all quite the sight to see.
This large and weighty antique Belle Epoque pendant was handcrafted in France around 1900. It’s a round pendant that features a beautiful woman with long golden locks carrying a bundle of fabric (or the Virgin Mary carrying a baby? We weren’t sure!). This elegant piece measures 49.5 mm north to south and 38.7 mm across. It weighs 16 grams. It bears the maker’s mark, “DECHAMPS” and the French eagle’s head mark, indicating it was made in 18 karat gold and assayed in Paris.
I wear it with a thin dark pink ribbon strung through the bale. It gives it that little something extra. Now it’s your turn to make it your own.
