This unique antique enamel pendant is of Austro-Hungarian origin and displays all the beauty and craftsmanship associated with this kind of rare jewellery. The pendant is of supreme quality and all parts including the pretty open Silver design, the gemstones and enamel are original.
The burgundy Garnets, duck egg blue and sea-greens of the turquoise and the vibrant multi-coloured enamel look glorious together, and the mother-of-Pearl adds a certain elegance to the piece.
We cannot overstate the beauty of the delicate enamel-work; in bright field-green, azure, yellow and orange.
The pendant comes with a vintage 16.5" Sterling Silver chain with a lovely patina that compliments the pendant perfectly.

Austro-Hungarian items are very difficult to find, and this one is just lovely. In near perfect condition! It's rare to find Austro-hungarian jewellery with any of the enamel intact, so it's especially nice to see the bright and beautiful colours here. The Garnets, Turquoise and mother-of-Pearl intact with no cracks or chips. As with most antiques we do see some wear commensurate with age, mot notable two areas o loss to the enamel on the back of the pendant. Luckily the rest seems very well preserved and again, is free from any chips or cracks so should be enjoyed for many more years. It's a very pretty piece full of authentic antique charm, and ready to wear straight away!
