Georgian 18ct Gold Amethyst Citrine Chatelaine, c.1780

£3,745.00
SKU: x4183

We are revelling over the sheer beauty of this Georgian 18ct Gold Amethyst Citrine chatelaine! Her fluid body is crafted entirely from buttery 18ct Gold, flaunting a display of the finest Georgian craftsmanship. From cannetille links intwined with skinny belcher links, to her delicate charms, oozing enough splendour to last you a lifetime all held together by her highly sought-after antique dog clip, she truly has it all. 

Imagine all of the necessities of a women's handbag displayed across her waist and you have yourself a chatelaine. Before purses were a woman’s primary accessory, chatelaines were at the height of popularity during the Georgian era, holding all of their valuables close to them around their waistband. 

The centrepiece showcases a dainty bouquet of wheat secured behind a pane of glass. We believe this piece could, along with her functionality, also be mourning jewellery, commemorating the life of a loved one. Adding a final touch of glitz and glam to this Georgian chatelaine is her Amethyst and Citrine, poised at the underside of her two charms. A remarkable piece of antique history, steeped in character, she will take pride of place within your jewellery box!

Condition

EXCELLENT. This Georgian 18ct Gold Amethyst Citrine chatelaine is in excellent condition! Considering her grand age, the Gold has a bright saturated hue throughout, with each component still securely attached to one another. The wheat bouquet looks just as delicate as when first made, a testament to Georgian craftsmanship. Due to how fragile the piece is, we would not advise it for everyday wear. Both gemstones are secure within their settings, with no damage to note. Complete with a rare screw-fix Gold dog clip, you can wear her with the utmost confidence!
