Description

This stunning gold cross studded with turquoise is typical of the 1830s and demonstrates the beautiful workmanship of the time. The intricate filigree and cannetille work is rendered in solid 15-carat gold, as is the whole piece, which we have had confirmed by x-ray testing.
Fifteen-carat gold pieces are not overly common (in the UK only really used between 1854 and 1932) and as this fineness was generally used in high quality pieces, it is attractive to collectors.
The six natural turquoise cabochons (each 5mm diameter) are bright and blue and well matched. The bottom stone is a little paler but they otherwise show little sign of the green colouration so often seen in old turquoise jewellery which has been in contact with skin over time.
The cross secures with a handmade lever clasp as a brooch or can be worn as a pendant.
The front is in excellent antique condition. There are areas of old solder on the back and the piece is solid.
Weight: 9.6g.
