Story

Pieces of jewelry from 18th century Spain and Portugal have a magical appeal. Typically high carat gold, as is this ornate pendant of 18k - 20k yellow gold. Set with forty-six (46) rose cut diamonds, this particular type of mount with its small cones or domes of gold is characteristic of the Iberian Peninsula region. The gem is set with gold up the sides and then burnished to a smooth finish which effectively encases the stone in a mound of gold.

The hand made open work pendant is rococo in overall feel especially with its flow of opposed and lyrical C-scrolls. Finely constructed curvilinear and elaborate forms with arcs and interruptions were intended to subsume the linear elements of the design. Please note the trio of teardrop dangles which hallmark a great deal of 18th century jewelry designs and motifs.

Date: Mid 18th century. Closer dating is difficult due to the persistence of styles in this region and the length of time they were in fashion.
