A gloriously large 55ct Citrine spinner pendant to integrate into your antique jewellery collection. This Victorian pendant combines two of our favourite things- a warm honey hued Citrine wrapped up in lustrous solid 9ct Gold!
This statement piece has been hallmarked to 1852, so we can only dream about who her previous owners were! The Citrine looks good enough to eat, with wonderful facets on every edge. The ornate bale features a tremendous amount of detail, with feminine curves and acanthus leaf engravings, so she really is an all rounder!

VERY GOOD TO EXCELLENT. This large 55ct Citrine spinner pendant is in very good to excellent condition! The faceted Citrine stone has wonderful facets on every edge, and they glisten beautifully under the light. What's more, she is completely smooth, and crystal clear.
The ornate bale is sturdy and fully hallmarked to the year 1852. It spins well after all these years, although it becomes a little stuff at one point where the gem is almost a little too large for the setting. Due to this, there are very light abrasions to some of the facet edges here when looked at very closely, but we don't think this takes away from her splendour at all. Nonetheless, she is almost perfect, and a beautiful and functional heirloom that draws all the right kind of attention!
