Story

This type of cross is sometimes referred to as a Normandy pendant or cross. For it is in that region of France where these typically originated and were worn.

It is interesting to note that this piece of jewelry has hallmarks from the Netherlands. Given the proximity of each of these regions, it is not surprising there was an overlap between trade and production.

Many regions prided themselves on specifics of costume dress and jewelry for both men and women. Regional & provincial clothing and adornments are often portrayed in paintings of the times almost always colorful and elaborate from head to toe.

This three-part pendant is fabricated in silver with touches of rose gold over silver and dotted with petite rose cut diamonds. Lace-like open metal work is all hand fashioned. Seven diamonds are set at the tops of the silver cones of silver and within two flower motif rose gold elements in the top section.

Admirers will love the mounds of silver with scalloped designs at their base and everything set closed-back. The reverse shows the propensity of 18th and 19th century jewelry to have slightly rounded back areas usually where diamonds, pastes or gemstones were set.

Originally a slide pendant, this was later converted into a brooch. If you prefer to wear this as such a fitting can easily be added, just ask.

Historical note: Georgian jewelry strictly speaking refers only to the jewelry of the British Isles during the reign of the four King Georges (1714-1837). However, it is often used as a term for jewelry created during that time period from countries including the US as well as European.

Regional jewelry's styles changed more slowly than those of the grand cities of Europe. Often this type of provincial jewelry was produced for decades.
