Victorian Large Enamel and Diamond Fringe Pendant 15k c. 1860
This is a very special piece, it's quite old and in near perfect condition. Made in 15k circa 1860, which is the high Victorian period, this pendant features bead set rose cut diamonds, as star set Old Mine Cut diamond and cobalt blue enamel accents with the most perfectly made fringe I think I've ever seen. If you loupe the enamel, you'll see that the gold underneath has been carved and faceted to give the enamel a sparkly effect. This isn't readily apparent with the naked eye other than that it makes the enamel much brighter. It's just little, special details like this that make this pendant so wonderful. The construction is incredible and it has been taken care of extremely well over the past 160 years! This pendant comes with a chunky Victorian 14k chain, which is a bit more rosy in color than the pendant--which is a bloomed deep yellow gold--but they look great together!
Pendant and chain not stamped or signed but tested for metal content. Engraved "JAS NS 2-22-63". I believe this is 1963 based on the font.
Pendant measures 2 3/4 x 1 1/16". Chain measures 16" length.
Entire piece weighs 22 grams.
In excellent antique condition!
