Story

For the well set lady of the Georgian era the almandine garnet was THE gem of day jewelry until falling out of favor in the early 1800s. Perfect for the return to symmetry that the mid-1700s saw in the fashionable design of the bow knot known as the Sevigne.

This resplendent brooch pendant combines the flowing naturalism of a foliate and floral drop motif with the stylized bow form of the day. Set in silver bezels and foiled, these all-original flat cut almandine garnets show as very vivid and distinctive pink purple and remain shimmering and bright with even foiling throughout. Hold in your hand that which embodies hundreds of years of history, personal joy and adornment.

Particularly feminine with the flower theme predominate, an almandine garnet-encrusted bow suspends an oval pendant with a centralized flower head surrounded by swells of leaves. The underside displays a closed back of rounded silver with a gold wash designed to protect the skin and clothing from tarnish. Please note the added later date pendant and brooch fittings.
