£1,850    $2,398    €2,197
We are delighted to offer this striking antique Victorian red rock crystal cabochon pendant necklace made with 15ct solid gold in the Victorian era, c.1880. (Please note the photographed box is solely for display purposes only. Unfortunately, it does not close with this pendant and as such we will supply a different modern box).
 
 
Eye-catching and unlike any contemporary piece, this pendant necklace is captivating at first glance and is unapologetically Victorian in style and elegance. This pendant features a rock crystal cabochon (backed with red lining) that has a wonderful saturated and almost 'strawberry candy-like' hue.
 
 
The cabochon is embellished with a gold star with a central seed pearl and five old rose-cut diamonds surrounding it. This celestial theme and look are completed with further seed pearl decorations on the border and overall capture the mystical nature of divinity/space in an enchanting design.
 
 
The reverse side of the pendant also features a finely hand-engraved lid that reveals a locket behind. The intricate craftsmanship and skill in making such a delicate yet ornate design are exemplary and marvellous in this piece.
 
 
The finely applied gold, rope-twist border and stippled effects are all a testament to the craftsmanship of a bygone era.
 
 
A remarkable piece of fine Victorian jewellery whether it be a special gift or for a personal addition. This pendant would most certainly make for a unique addition for the distinguished antique jewellery lover and an instant conversation starter upon wearing. Perfect as a single centrepiece necklace to accentuate your outfit or among other Victorian jewellery.
 
 
The pendant is unmarked as is common with articles of this period and as such we have tested it fully with results indicating 15ct solid gold.
