This remarkable giardinetti or "little garden" pendant from the Georgian or early Victorian era (circa 1820-1850)!
This outstanding pendant features an urn of flowers adorned with colorful gemstones. The pendant was originally an antique silver brooch transformed with the addition of a 14k gold bail. The pendant holds rose cut diamonds, a teardrop shaped pink tourmaline, a high domed natural sapphire, and smaller green and pink glass accents.
The pendant measures 1.6 inches from top to bottom by 0.85 inches wide. It is in great condition; however, one of the small pink glass cabochons was replaced with a tiny ruby and one of the green glass stones was replaced with an emerald. The sapphire also has a small chip on the side - visible only under magnification.
We are providing the option to purchase the pendant with or without the 18 inch 14k gold chain depicted in the photos.
