“Understated chic” should not be in the vocabulary of the next owner of this antique 9ct Gold Almandine Garnet & Diamond pendant. Vamp it up to the max with plump, blood-red cabochons and a teardrop of Almandine Garnet, with both spectacular scarlet gems encased by Diamond encrusted claws.
Charming Rose cut Diamonds border the Garnet drop, underneath an impressive 0.54ct Diamond in a pie crust setting. The reverse of the brooch envelopes the closed back settings generously in 9ct Gold, with acanthus leaf engravings. Handily, a fold-away bale and jump ring in 15ct have been added, so that she can be transformed instantly into a brooch.
A stunning, once-in-a-lifetime piece for anyone with a penchant for grandeur, Garnets or Gothic style!

EXCELLENT. This antique 9ct Gold Almandine Garnet & Diamond pendant is simply superb! She really does have it all. The glowing Almandine Garnets are smooth surfaced and securely set in a solid slab of 9ct Gold. All 45 Diamonds are original and snug in their settings, and the engraving on the reverse is still crisp. The hinged pin of the brooch is easily coaxed into the C clasp where it rests safely while worn and the jump ring on the pendant bale is soldered shut entirely.
