Early Australian jewellery has become so sought after and so extremely collectable in recent years, and here is a very exciting early Australian antique brooch that is attributed to Alfred Lorking. So typical of his work in not only the style, but the detail, form as well as the use of natural pearls makes this such a wonderful example of his work. Alfred Lorking was a Sydney jeweller who operated between 1853 to 1859 making his pieces not only one some of the oldest pieces of Australian jewellery, but also exceedingly hard to find. Made in 15 carat gold, the brooch measures 41.2mm across by 35mm and has a wonderful border reminiscent of a trunk with grape leaves inside as well as the â€śgrapesâ€ť consisting entirely of natural pearls. With such a stunning effect now created, this comes together harmoniously to create such a fabulous brooch that is exciting to admire from near or far. This is truly an exciting piece of Australiaâ€™s history that can be worn with such pride. Stock# ES9617 Maker: Alfred Lorking (Attributed) Circa: 1855 $Sold.
Here is a very unique and elegant antique pearl, ruby and sapphire pendant that was made in 15ct rose gold in the late 1800's and looks so stylish on the neck and will always be admired. Designed with such a flowing design with a floral theme, there are two "flowers" with one set with a central sapphire and the other a central ruby. Both are highlighted majestically with seed pearls with further seed pearls set on the stems as well as below the pendant that sways so elegantly. With the double chain leading up to the top bail, even this part has been beautifully made with a gorgeous style and design to it. Measuring 25.7mm across by 39.2mm or 59mm to the top of the bail, this is such an elegant antique pendant that is as unique as it is beautiful and will always be admired and appreciated for its beauty and style.
