Hand made in 18 carat gold, the pendant is set with five clusters of garnets that all display such a rich burgundy red colour as well as the detachable section on the top. Measuring 45mm across, by 62.8mm to the top piece or 51.9mm without, when it is worn as a brooch, the top garnet easily detaches so as not to get in the way.

Here is an ingenious Victorian era antique amethyst and pearl pendant that converts to a brooch so easily and no matter which way it is worn, will always be loved for the gorgeous colour combination of the pearls and amethysts as well as the elegant design that will always be admired. Hand made in 9 carat rose gold in the 1890's, this piece is set with a beautiful cluster of seed pearls surrounding a central amethyst with more amethysts around the edge and then one suspended so delicately at the bottom that is also set with seed pearls. The top bail which is again set with a seed pearl, is attached via a clever design that allows it to easily be taken on and off, all the while being very secure and not able to come off on its own. The reason this part detaches, is that when it is worn as a brooch, if this part sticks up, it will look very odd, so detaching it makes perfect sense. Measuring 26.1mm across, with the top bail it measures 47.4mm tall or 36.5mm without this part. These dimensions make it perfect for a pendant or a brooch and regardless of how you choose to wear it, there is no doubt that it will always be admired as the combination of pearls and amethysts, along with the elegant design, will always make this such a stand out piece of jewellery from the late Victorian era.

Here is an absolutely divine antique guillochĂ© enamel and pearl pendant with a locket on the back that was made in the early 1900's that looks amazing thanks to the vibrant red enamel. To begin with, this enamelling was created using a special technique resulting in what is called guillochĂ© enamel. This is one of the most popular of all the enamel techniques and it is so easy to see why. Produced by a very precise and repetitive pattern that is engraved into an underlying material such as gold or silver, it then has the enamel applied over the top and after the firing process is complete, it is polished back to a high lustre revealing the engraved pattern below the surface. The red is so vibrant on this piece and will certainly stand out no matter where or when it was worn. With a very elegant surround set with forty seven pearls, there is a cluster of nine more pearls in the centre to add to the charm and character of the piece. Then turning it over reveals a section for a photo of a loved one that will then make this pendant even more personal and special. Made in 9 carat rose gold, it measures 33.4mm across by 42.4mm or 47.2mm to the very top of the bail for the chain to pass through. Simply perfect for any occasion, this is a wonderful antique pendant and locket that is like no other. Stock# ES8528 Circa: 1900 $Sold.
Here is a truly exquisite diamond and pearl double sided antique pendant with hand painted portraits on ivory that gets more and more beautiful the closer you look at it, and is a real testament to what the jewellers of the Victorian era could produce. So beautifully hand made in 15 carat rose gold and silver where the diamonds are set, silver was used to set the diamonds into during this time until the early 1900â€™s as until then white gold was not yet invented and platinum, although already discovered, was not used in jewellery until around the same time as white gold. Not only are there rose cut diamonds set on the top in what can only be described as the most gorgeous setting, as well as more rose cut diamonds at the very bottom, but looking close at the portrait of the young lady, there are ten more rose cut diamonds including the ones is a very sweet heart design. In total there are sixty five rose cut diamonds with a total weight of 0.78 carats, as well as seventeen natural pearls to compliment the beauty of this piece. Then when you look into the eyes of both the young lady and the baby, this also exemplifies the quality of the pendant as these have been hand painted to the highest standard complimenting the piece even further. And on the back of each portrait are the names "Ellen Lorna Fielden, when 18" and "Cecil M. Fielden, 1 year old". After extensive research we have found that not only were they brother and sister, but they were actually twins, both being born on the 30th September, 1854 in Yorkshire. With Ellen being 18 years old when painted, this would put the piece at being made around 1872 which is exactly in the style and era of this pendant. All of this makes this pendant so much more special and magical and a real way to hold a peace of history in your hand. Measuring 36.5mm across by 65mm or 75mm to the very top of the bail, this is by far one of the most outstanding antique pendants that you will lever come across, and an absolute treasure to admire from near or far.

So elegant and typical of jewellery from the mid-Victorian era comes this antique garnet and diamond locket pendant dating from the 1870's that will always be admired from near or far. Hand made in 18 carat yellow gold and silver, the reason that silver was used to set the diamonds into was that it was known that the yellow from the gold could artificially tint the diamonds yellow and as white gold was not yet invented and platinum was not used in jewellery until about the same time as white gold in the early 1900's, silver was used. The pendant is set with three oval cabochon cut garnets that have such a wonderful intense burgundy red colour to them and are highlighted by twelve rose cut diamonds. Measuring 24.4mm across by 29.9mm, turning the pendant over reveals a locket compartment to put the photo of a loved one to then make this so much more personal and special. Perfect for any occasion, this is a stunning example of mid-Victorian jewellery at its finest. Stock# ES8196 Circa: 1870 $5,900
