Story

Pansies are one of the late Georgian era’s touching and sentimental motifs. Often seen in jewelry of the late 18th and early 19th century, they were a springboard of design for every manner of jewel.

The symbolism is taken from the French words, “Pensez a moi”, literally translated thinking of you. Pensez, of course, sounds almost like the word pansy. These large, gemstone set examples are now difficult to find and this is a particularly striking pendant.

Often arranged with two alternating colors of gemstones and a larger size one at the bottom, the combination reminds us of real pansies, usually with petals of two or more varying colors.

Of lavender and deeper purple toned amethyst along with golden yellow citrines, the combination of hues reads rich and lush. Each is a faceted oval, set open backed; the gems are at their radiant best. With a total weight of 13.25 carats for the pendant, the vibrance and motif remains entrancing.

At the center is placed a raised area with 6 beads of gold to denote the stigma of the flower. An old mine cut diamond graces the center (.06 carats, H-I color, SI1-2 clarity).

Set in 15k gold, the mounts are serrated collets with added bead work to the edges. A fold-up or down bale of 10k gold was added later paired with a perfectly matched amethyst bale. Originally this was a brooch converted to a pendant.
