25mm x 18mm
English & Italian Hallmarks for 9ct
Vintage 9ct Gold, Bohemian Garnet Pendant Necklace
A charming Victorian-revival pendant on a vintage Italian chain.
Pave-set with blood-red garnets, this gorgeous cluster pendant looks like the inside of a pomegranate!
It emulates a style very popular in the late Victorian period, when these pieces were set with Czech-mined (Bohemian) garnets.
Both chain and pendant bear 9ct import hallmarks for London, as well as 375 stamps, indicating this piece was made in continental Europe sometime prior. The chain is Italian-made in Arezzo near Florence – the pendant likely originates from the same region.
The pendant measures 25mm x 18mm, and the chain measures 50cm.
A wonderfully wearable vintage piece, it would make a lovely gift – or a treat for yourself!
