Antique pendant that can be worn as a brooch by Duggin, Shappere & Co

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.

And removing the bail is simply a matter of sliding the piece out of the hole on the main section so when it is worn as a brooch, this does not hinder the look or the way it sits on the outfit. This is such a simple yet ingenuous system that it often seen on antique brooch/pendants and one that is so logical to allow it become two separate pieces of jewellery.

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.
