Story

Three countries specialized in chrysoberyl jewelry back in the 18th and 19th centuries, Spain, Portugal and to a lesser degree, England.

Discovered in Brazil by the Portuguese and Spanish explorers, this gemstones' high refractive index and lemon green hues almost make the stones as fiery as pale green diamonds.

A grand and showy pendant, this is not for the faint of heart. The Three Graces has had few English pieces of chrysoberyl in all our nearly 20 years, so this is a special treat. (Very few Portuguese or Spanish ones as well).

In six parts, each is articulated for maximum shimmer. Thirty four shaped, natural vibrant chrysoberyls add up to an estimated 32 carats of clear, fine and bright gems.

Each is set remarkably into Pinchbeck metal. Yes, not gold although it will fool anyone. We couldn't believe our testing either and repeated it many times, but these riches of gemstones have been set in that wonderful, non-tarnishing metal so thoroughly English.

For a history of Pinchbeck, see our footer section, "Jewelry History", then click on "Helpful Terms" and scroll down to that section.

Georgian in date, the pendant comes in an antique re-fitted hinged box. A rare treat.
