Story

The pendant was one of the more desirable neck ornaments during the later decades of the 19th century. Often it was worn suspended from a string of pearls, a gold chain or even threaded through a velvet ribbon.

This later Victorian pendant displays the lozenge-shaped design favored somewhat earlier by master jeweler Carlo Giuliano. Quite considerable in size, this impressive three-element articulated jewel is weighty and solidly constructed of silver.

Faceted and square vividly colored pastes of vivid peony pink accent the center and four cardinal points of the pendant as round white pastes are set within silver scrolls encrusted with small dots of white paste. A modified leaf motif wends its way throughout the pastes. Tiny white pastes outline a tear shaped drop that encloses a similarly configured paste gem of pink symmetrically balancing the original paste-set bale.
