Edwardian Ruby and Pearl Pendant/Brooch

Sold

Details

Lacy circular brooch/pendant with 'spoke' and quatrefoil gallery detail. Quintessentially Edwardian in style, with its delicate hues provided by peridot, pinkish-red rubies and natural seed pearls against a background of soft toned 15ct gold. The little bow detail at the top is a lighthearted addition and allows for the detachable bale. The colour combination seen in this piece is often attributed to the 'suffragette' movement of the period. Date c1900. Measures 37mm diameter.
