Story

Renaissance revival jewelry of the 19th century is highly collectible, always difficult to find, and ever evocative of a long-lost era that continues to conjure up splendor and history.

Who doesn't' think of Queen Elizabeth I, her courtiers, magnificent gowns and accessories, rich tapestries and fine castles?

The materials consist of natural rubies, diamonds, gold, and enamel yet have been transformed into something far greater.

Twenty-three old mine and rose cut diamonds are set within a convex dome of robin's egg blue enamel. Fine gold has been enameled to the surface of the star, with the diamonds set within its eight rays.

An outer perimeter of creamy white enamel is punctuated by four natural rubies and knobbed arches of enamel adorned with four-petaled blue, yellow, and red tiny flowers.

This is suspended from three chains (also characteristic of my Renaissance era pendants) dotted with natural freshwater pearls and the original enameled top bale.

Turning it over, the back reveals a glass covered locket compartment. Its rim can be gently lifted, and a photograph or memento set inside. Currently there is a rose-colored fabric within.
