This is a wonderful example of making your jewellery work for you in so many ways. Made by the early Australian jewellery company Duggin, Shappere & Co at the start of the 20th century, this pendant was made in 9 carat gold and set with two lovely vibrant garnets and to highlight the design, twenty natural seed pearls in the man section, with another set into the detachable bail. Measuring 32.9mm across, when worn as a pendant it measures 53.8mm or when the detachable bail at the top is removed, 43.3mm.

So easily able to be dressed up or down, this will be the perfect piece for any occasion no matter how you choose to wear it. Stock# ES9322 Maker: Duggin, Shappere & Co Circa: 1900 $Sold

This antique pendant dates from the late 1800's and will always look magnificent every time that it is worn and certainly captures the light thanks to the beautiful antique diamonds. Hand made in 18 carat yellow gold and sterling silver, the reason that silver was used instead of white gold or platinum is that it was not until the early 1900â€™s that white gold was invented, and platinum although already discovered, was not used in jewellery until around this same time. The design is so elegant and feminine and in total there are nineteen European cut diamonds set into the pendant as well as a further three more set into the bail at the top. These diamonds come together to total 0.58 carats and then the pendant is further highlighted by being set with two natural pearls. The design as well as the use of pearls makes this such an elegant piece and even with all of the diamonds, it is not an ostentatious piece of jewellery and will therefore always be admired for its elegance and beauty. Measuring 13.7mm cross by 18.8mm to the top of the bail, this will sit perfectly around the neck where it will always be worn with pride. Stock# ES9092 Circa: 1890 $Sold.
Cameos have been found as far back as 3,000BC and each one is as unique as a painting, and here is an antique cameo of exceptional quality. Dating from the 1880's, most cameos are carved from shell, and the finest quality ones are carved from harder material such as this one here in onyx. Any cameo carved from this harder material can only be done by a master carver with many years of experience and the advantage of using a material such as onyx, is that it is naturally layered in two colours to highlight the top carving from the background. Looking closely at the carving of a man, there is no doubt that this was carved by someone of immense skill. From the detail in the eye, hair and nose, to the curls in his beard, this is a truly exceptional cameo that is up there with the best of the best. And then there is the mount that it is set into which is not only beautiful but very ingenious. Made in 15 carat gold, it is set with a border of eight pearls and eight European cut diamonds, as well as two more pearls and one more diamond on the top detachable bail. The diamonds total 0.86 carats and sparkle so beautifully and highlights the cameo even further. Not only can this be worn as both a pendant and a brooch, but when this is being worn as a pendant, the brooch fitting on the back can be unscrewed and the hook that it clips into can be folded down to allow it to sit flat against the chest, and when worn as a brooch, the top bail can be removed. This just shows how much thought went into making this piece over 140 year ago and regardless of how it is chosen to be worn, it will always be admired. Measuring 36.9mm across by 45.2mm or 58.4mm with the bail attached, this is one of the finest quality cameos that you will ever see. Stock# ES9007 Circa: 1880 $7,450
