Here is an antique piece of jewellery that typifies how to make the most use of your jewellery with an antique aquamarine and pearl pendant that converts to a brooch.
Made in 15ct gold and dating from the late 1800’s, the design of this pendant cum brooch is typical of this period and so sweet to look at let alone wear around your neck.
With a central aquamarine surrounded by pearls, there are a further pearls around this pendant to highlight it even more along with a further aquamarine suspended from the bottom.
Turning the of pendant over reveals the detachable bail which itself is set with more seed pearls and after this is removed allows this to be worn so comfortably as a brooch without having the bail sticking up and looking out of place.
Such a simple and reigned technique that works so well and makes this so easy to wear as a brooch or a pendant.
From left to right the brooch measures 28.8mm by 47.2mm from the bottom to the top with the bail attached or 37.5mm without.
With the lovely blue emanating from the aquamarines, the sweetness of the seed pearls to the versatility of the piece to wear as either a brooch or a pendant, this is really such a perfect piece of antique jewellery to have and wear all the time.
