Story

Jewelry of the Georgian era is renown for its sophisticated gold work using far less of the precious material. Floral work became less stylized and more representational and gems such as aquamarine and chrysoberyl and amethyst were employed.

This circa 1830 – 1840 example of repoussé gold work, quite fashionable at the time, is of a large cruciform pendant. Although rather light in weight, the pendant appears to be substantial with its three-dimensional perspective. Set with a central oval faceted amethyst with lovely detailed leaf elements radiating, each of the arms of the pendant displays a beautiful elongated diamond-shaped citrine. Please refer to page 77 of “Jewels and Jewellery” by Clare Phillips for similar examples of period repoussé work.
