Antique Georgian Necklace / Pendant. Gold, silver and Diamonds. Made early 18th century - 1700 - 1750 Normandy France. <P><P>
Measurements: Just under 2inches (50mm) long. Largest diamond is about 5mm long (site). Weighs 9 grams. <P><P>
French Provincial jewelry from Normandy. Made of high grade gold (at least 22k), silver highlights and set with diamonds. Like all necklaces of this time, it would originally have been worn hung from a ribbon around the neck. Clearly very old - the gold is pulled around the diamonds, which are very simply
cut. Extra 'bling' is attained by the use of silver stars and highlights. Wonderful, extremely fine scrolling gold wirework around the rich settings of the diamonds.
The backs are foiled and the workmanship on the backs of the flowers is possibly even more beautiful than that of the front. Clearly, they are made to be seen,
making the pendant reversible. <P><P>
No hallmarks - typical of jewellery of this age. <P><P>
Good condition - quite amazing considering the age and delicacy of the piece. <P>
A modern, totally unrelated 9ct gold chain is included for convenience of the buyer.
