About

A stunning and exceptional rock crystal, lapis lazuli and 18k yellow gold locket / pendant by Garrard & Co; part of our diverse antique jewellery collections.

This stunning, exceptional, fine and impressive rock crystal pendant has been crafted in 18k yellow gold.

The oval shaped pendant is ornamented with an exceptional cabochon cut rock crystal, displaying a hand painted panel depicting a white pansy upon a blue background.

The surrounding border of the pendant is embellished with seven individually collet set cabochon cut lapis lazulis.

The reverse of the pendant is inset with a push fit panel, allowing this versatile example of Victorian jewellery to be used as a locket.

The pendant suspends from a later 9k yellow gold curb chain via an integrated ring loop attachment to the upper border of the design.

The 21" chain is hallmarked to the spring loaded bolt ring fastening with a maker's mark 'BPL', the London import mark, the 9k gold fineness mark and the date letter for 1982 (H).

The pendant is fitted to the original leatherette hinged presentation case.

The case has a velvet and satin lined interior which displays the retailer's name 'R&S.GARRARD&Co, Goldsmith & Jewellers to the crown, 25 Haymarket London.'

This exceptional antique Victorian pendant has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 18k gold.
