14-15ct yellow gold, carved garnet. European or English, made 2nd half 19th century. Measurements: Weight is 6.6 grams.Approximately 1 1/4 inches (a little over 3cm) long excluding the bale. The bale adds approximately 1/4 inch (just under 1cm). Description : Celebrating love, this pendant has everything possible romantic about it. It is made in the form of a double heart, one heart superimposed over the other.
Very rich and full in form. A raised colette in the center holds a beautifully carved garnet double heart, mirroring the shape of the whole. The carving is very smoothe.
A cherub sits atop the hearts. A long, twisting ribbon falls from his shoulders and twines down the sides of the pendant. Around his feet and legs, a rope is twisted, conveying a prisoner of love message - on the one hand the joy of the ribbons and on the other, the bound legs. Lovely modelling to the figure.
A generous bale with engraved detail allows for a chain or ribbon. The back of the pendant is also modelled as a pair of overlapping hearts - very physical and sensuous. A hinge on the side allows the pendant to open.
Both halves are able to contain either a lock of hair or a portrait of a loved one. The perfect gift for a loved one on St Valentine's or any other romantic holiday. Guarranteed to melt every and any heart. Marks and Metal: No marks.
Gold was acid tested to ensure metal purity. Condition: Good with minor wear commensurate with age.
