A gorgeous and exquisite, example of a rare, enchanting early Georgian Victorian or earlier Pendant or Charm. In the form of an elegantly shaped puffy heart. Sure to become a fabulous addition to your charm bracelet or necklace. Perfect for display in a glass case. Featuring a series of circular gems. These are becoming so hard to find and are escalating in price daily. Due to it's extreme rarity, you would pay a small fortune for this gorgeous 'work of art' at a finer antique or vintage estate jewelry store (over $400 - $600) so this represents a wonderful opportunity to own a beautiful antique treasure at such a great price. This tiny keepsake heart is very elegantly crafted. This two piece sculptural and curvilinear pavé setting with multiple small turquoise gemstones are masterfully crafted individually on the heart. The chain enhancer is original to the piece. The gems are set extremely close together and feature a smooth cobblestone pattern close to the surface. Gives the appearance that the surface of this fine jewelry is “paved” with gemstones. Hence Pave'. Beautiful and RARE!
During the Georgian and early and late Victorian periods use of turquoise in fine jewelry was highly desired and most popular. With nearly (25) finely sculpted and carved smooth cabochons of genuine, untreated, natural Persian turquoise (the color of sleeping beauty turquoise) you can rest assured this stunning one-of-a-kind piece took many days if not weeks to design & masterfully create. The settings are so close together that only the teeny tiny metal prongs are exposed between. Under a loop they took like extremely teeny tiny hand-crafted silver burrs were used to hold the lovely stones in place. Gemstones are of the finest quality. (tested between .999-.925)
Not a locket, possibly an English antique this piece has a nice closed jump ring which remains in place to slip a chain through if you prefer to add it to a necklace. The stones are not paste they are genuine untreated natural turquoise gemstones.
Condition: MINT CONDITION sterling is smooth surfaced, these style pendants are rare and sometimes contained a small plait hair. Sometimes these rare pendants held a mourning keepsake glass or small photo etc on the back; Front and back are in excellent overall condition with expected variations in color to the stones shapes since they are each completely hand-crafted pavé-set turquoise.
Approx. Date: Circa late 1700 – 1840
