A jaw droppingly GORGEOUS French c1880-1890 antique 18ct rose gold floral detail and design pendant/brooch set with rose cut diamonds and pearls which I have coupled with a antique 9ct rose gold watch chain, together with T bar drop.
This is the most extraordinarily beautiful and detailed piece which was originally dual purposed to allow the owner to wear as a pendant or as a brooch. I have respected and kept the integrity of the piece, thus allowing this still to be available to the new owner.
I usually remove the pins/hinges from all of my brooch pieces. But NO NO NO, not with this one....... The exquisite attention to detail is an art form in itself and far too beautiful to be removed or disguarded. (Please see close up photo of the way the pin 'keeper' spirals exquisitely around the pin head, perfectly protecting the wearer from the sharp end of the pin.
This 18ct gold piece is of a rich rose gold with raised floral work inlaid with rose cut diamonds and pearls. The outer edges also have pretty fancy scroll and ball work detail to them: All contributing to an exceptionally attractive, desirable and versatile piece of jewellery.
The antique Albert watch chain has a smooth rose gold patina, this being 9ct gold. I have kept the original T bar which retains the integrity of the watch chain and the robustness of which contradicts and compliments the delicate detail of the pendant.
An eclectic collectors item (such pieces are becoming more and more difficult to source). Absolutely stunning when worn. Wear alone or layered with any of my other jewellery delights - wear 'smuggley'.
A classically classy and cool forever heirloom jewellery piece.
