Georgian Royal Amethyst Cross Pendant
Pendants from the early 1800s were usually of cruciform design. Equally at home as a fashion statement and as a sign of devotion, the configuration of the cross was as varied as the materials used to craft and adorn it.
Hand made two-part hinged construction characterizes this typical silver and rose gold back pendant in the form of a Latin cross. The body of the pendant is set closed back with magnificent deep royal purple amethysts in silver collets. It is suspended from a hinged surmount or bale consisting of a square set amethyst within a flow of beautiful silver C-shapes forms in an elaborate scrollwork pattern. Accenting the very vividly colored gemstones with a sparkle all their own are five (5) tiny rose cut diamonds.
Date: Early 19th century.
Measurements: 3-1/8 inches (8 cm) in length by 1-3/8 inches (3.1 cm) in width. Weight of 16.7 grams (10.7 dwt).
Hallmarks: One illegible hallmark and one hallmark, “CF” which is partially legible.
Condition: Very good; replaced top pendant bale with its later hallmark; 3 tiny chips to diamonds. One amethyst corner chip only visible with a loupe. Cross slightly off axis due to its hand made nature.
