Story

The glory of the old world comes down to us through centuries in the form of a magnificent two part pendant. Studded with garnets and emeralds and worked with enamels, it is a reminder of how the history of adornment evolves and yet remains fresh.

Most likely hailing from the Iberian peninsula of either Spain or Portugal, the pendant displays elements of jewelry design from the 17th and 18th centuries.

Its form is classic 18th century with inspiration from the bow motif atop and a symmetrical foliate circular drop of 18k burnished rich gold. The metal work creates allows spaces to punctuate the scrolling organic forms and leaf incised parts.

Almandine garnets and emeralds dot the surfaces. All are set into rub over gold where the top of the gems just peaks through.

The center flower form is dotted with tiny pink and white orbs on linear elements of gold. This technique was often seen in the 17th century as well as into the 18th. Even the colors are referential to that time. Beneath are translucent Kelly green and cobalt blue enamel petals. At the apex, a tower of gold with another flat cut garnet.

The reverse is hand engraved and so impressive one would be tempted to wear it in reverse. In the 17th century this would have been entirely covered in polychrome or black and white enamels. As the 18th century wore on, the backs were decorated with this linear engraving instead.

Scarce and in remarkable condition, it is an antique Georgian pendant in the true spirit of the 18th century.
