We are captivated by this Victorian rose-cut Diamond Giardinetti pendant, which dates back to 1850. Flowers were a fashionable and symbolic bejewelled choice throughout the 19th century, and this pendant is a fine example of the exemplary craftsmanship of the time.
Giardinetti jewellery first became popular in Italy, with “Giardinetti” translating to “Little Garden”. Referring to floral-themed jewellery, bouquets and blossoms took centre stage throughout this era and we are so lucky to get our hands on a piece!
Every crevice of this Victorian pendant is lavishly embellished with rose-cut Diamonds, each possessing a sophisticated sparkle. Each hand-cut Diamond is unique, making this pendant all the more special. Complete with a 9ct Gold jump ring, simply suspend her from a slender Gold chain for an opulent antique look.
