Georgian Gold and Garnet Snowflake Cross Pendant

About the Item

Glistening like a glass of fine burgundy held up to the light, this lovely Georgian cross was made by setting the garnets in a setting with a closed back so that a sliver of foil could be placed in the cup under the garnet. This clever technique was used to attract all available daylight and candlelight at night. The cross resembles a snowflake. It has round, oval and square garnets which mixture gives the cross texture. The gold is 15 Kt the English Standard. It is a treasure in excellent condition despite its 200 year history. It was loved and cared for. The cross measures 1 3/4 inches high and I 1/2 inches wide. Easy to wear with pride. Beautiful to pass on as an heirloom of jewelry history.
