This gorgeous Arts and Crafts Turquoise pendant is a rare and wonderfully unusual antique piece that we hope you love as much as we do!
The unique pendant is typical of the Arts and Crafts era. The Arts and Crafts movement liked to push the boundaries of modern design, embracing natural forms and rejecting the overly-ornate jewellery of their predecessors. The large beautifully marbled vibrant Turquoise is indicative of this, and it's connected to an interesting and rare white Enamel halo. What a sight to behold!

VERY GOOD: This large Arts and Crafts Turquoise pendant is in great nick for its age! The Silver framework is keeping all stones securely in place with a strong bale to hold everything together perfectly! The large Turquoise is perfect at the front with amazing mesmerising blues that certainly is eye-catching. There is a small chip at the back of the pendant which is easily concealed when worn. The white Enamel halo is a great addition to this pendant, pure white apart from a little wear towards the end of the left side. A delightful and highly collectable pendant from a sought after period in history!
