A strand of pearls has been the ladies accessory of choice for millennia, and will likely continue to be the classic standard of adornment for millennia to come. Sometimes a simple strand of smooth and shimmering beads is perfect all on it’s own, but at other times it begs for a little something extra. Some pendants are made to be the perfect addition to a strand of pearls, that little something more that turns a simple strand into an enticing necklace. This wonderful pendant could also be worn on a chain, but hanging on a strand of pearls is where it’s really meant to be!
This hand crafted, locket backed, pendant is set with a glowing burgundy garnet at it’s center. The 11 mm garnet is surrounded by ten beautiful and shining creamy white half pearls, these are extremely well matched and seem original to the pendant, they measure between 5 and 6 mm each. The top bale is set with an additional three pearls and has an open style bale that makes it easy to hang over a pearl string or wear on a golden chain or even a simple cord. The pendant measures 31.5 mm north to south and 21.3 mm across and weighs 7.2 grams. This lovely pendant/locket is not marked but we’ve acid tested it and it’s crafted in 18 karat gold.
This wonderful Victorian piece was most likely made in England around 1880.
