An exceptional micromosaic pendant featuring an iridescent beetle set in shimmery goldstone.
This eye catching pendant dates to the late Victorian era (circa 1870). The piece features small pieces of tesserae glass hand set in the form of an insect against a goldstone backdrop set in 14k gold. Goldstone is a glittery copper-hued glass with flecks of gold.
The pendant measures 1.6 inches from top to bottom by 1.3 inches wide. It is in very good condition; however, the 14k gold bail is a later replacement.
We are providing the option to purchase the pendant with or without the 20 inch 10k gold chain depicted in the photos.
