The early years of the Edwardian era (and there weren’t very many as the period was very short) were marked by the use of wreaths and garlands in jewels and in art and fashion of the day, hence this period is often called by it’s other name, ‘The Garland Era’.
This fantastic Edwardian pendant indicative of the Garland Era, with it’s leafy center motif of creamy white pearls surrounding a glowing purple amethyst. The hand crafted pendant was made in England in about 1905 of 15 karat gold, and may originally have been a brooch, the 16 inch chain that holds it now as a drop is hand crafted of 18 karat gold and dates to about the same era, although it’s French in make. It’s a lovely conversion and so imminently wearable!
The pendant drop measures 34 mm north to south and side to side, it is marked to the reverse with ’15CT’ for 15 karat gold and the clasp of the chain is marked with French marks on the clasp including the eagles head purity mark for 18k gold. This piece weighs 6.5 grams.
