This Georgian 9ct Gold Garnet Pearl mourning pendant is an antique jewellery collector's dream! Featuring a delectable display of foiled flat-cut Garnets, oozing vampy reds and soft silky Pearls, bordering a panel of finely woven hair at the centre of this antique Gold.
Flat-cut Garnets were heavily used within regal jewellery pieces during the early 19th century due to their affordability and their ability to marry with any attire. They were quite often foiled to enhance their berry red hues allowing them to glisten beneath the candlelight.
We know this Gold Garnet Pearl pendant was crafted by jewellers J.J Peters & Co, based in the heart of Bristol, meaning she carries a lot of local history. Later engraved 'Dottie 3rd April 1881' this Georgian Garnet pendant carries a rich story ready for you to be a part of her next chapter!
