About

This spectacular antique 18K gold and garnet necklace, earrings and brooch set is a rare treasure. Each piece is loaded with sparkling faceted brown garnets and packed with incredibly detailed handcrafted cannetille work. All garnets are set with foil backs.

Every part of this set is covered by cannetille flowers, granulation and beading, textured leaves and scrolls. The necklace consists of 18 segmented pieces, each with garnets, with a four piece drop in the center. In total the necklace contains 52 stones of varying sizes in oval, round and pear shape. Length of the drop is three inches. At the back is a hidden box clasp. Antique European mark for 18K gold.

The chandelier earrings are made with segmented pieces allowing for great movement. They contain a total of 40 garnets in oval, round and pear shaped cuts. They are almost identical to the drop on the necklace.

The matching diamond-shaped brooch has a hook on the back and can also be worn as a pendant. It boasts nine oval cut garnets set among the elaborate cannetille work.

Condition: Some changes were made to the back of pieces over time. The earrings were possibly made from necklace pendants, have repairs. Closures have been updated to an Omega clip with post, causing slight deformation of cannetille work at connection. Some garnets have cracks or inclusions - everything commensurate with age and use.

Generally the set is very good antique condition, sparkling and amazing looking, wearable and ready for use. Each piece would be stunning worn alone, together they are breathtaking.

France, circa 1830.
