Story

Jewelers from the 18th through the early 20th century demonstrated ingenuity using a few “tricks of the trade”. One of those clever jewelry designs was having different types of fittings which allowed for wear as a brooch as well as a pendant. This particular pendant brooch circa 1900 still retains its original removable bale.

Set in a 9k yellow gold rectangular collet, a glorious natural amber-hued citrine of an impressive 13 mm by 10 mm boasts an estimated weight of 5 carats. At each of the four cardinal points of the collet a trefoil element with three (3) petite natural freshwater half pearls enhances the symmetry of the pendant.

Suspended from the southern point is a flower form drop consisting of two mabe freshwater pearls bisected by a pair of gold leaves set with two petite freshwater half pearls. This brings the total number of freshwater half pearls to fifteen (including the bale). A modern fine curb link chain of 9k yellow gold accompanies the pendant brooch.

Date: Circa 1900, chain is new.
