Characteristic of Georgian era jewelry, this lyrical piece can be worn multiple ways. As a brooch, as a pendant, or remove the bottom dangle and wear that alone as a pendant. Jewelry was costly and rare and ideally had to function for various dresses and occasions and was often worn for many years.
Created in two-parts, the diamond encrusted top displays a fleur-de-lis element and downward branches leaves and volutes of silver topped 15 yellow gold.
It's dangle presents with more open work and stylized floral and scrolling designs, all dotted with diminutive naive rose cut diamonds. At the center is a golden base that holds a mabe domed pearl.
Forty-eight naive rose cut diamonds are encased in silver (total weight of .30 carats, color K-O, clarity SI2-3). The reverse shows a basket or sun ray designed base for the mabe pearl often seen in jewelry from around 1750-1780.
