Ask a question

This pretty late 19th century 18-carat gold pendant/brooch epitomises the late Victorian period.

Half pearl-set jewels such as this were the height of middle class fashion. Shapes were often round and deep, as here. And the cluster centre surrounded by rays is a variation on the popular celestial and floral themes of the day.

The original drop-down bale is typical, so it can be easily worn as a pendant or brooch.

All the pearls are original and lustrous, with an appealing creamy white hue, complemented by the rich yellow gold setting.
