Georgian harlequin pendant
The Georgian jewellers’ use of foiled settings to catch and reflect light resulted in pieces of jewellery in a dazzling kaleidoscope of colours. This gold pendant, circa 1800, is set with a large Imperial topaz, surrounded by citrines, emeralds and rose-cut diamonds with an amethyst drop. All sections are fluid and articulated and it sits well on the neck. The pendant is 2 inches long, 3/4 of an inch wide at its widest point and in a Victorian fitted case. Luscious colours, immaculate condition.
