Victorian "REGARD" Gemstone Floral Heart Necklace

About

A beautiful gemstone "REGARD" necklace from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This unusual acrostic piece is crafted in vibrant 18kt gold and has a very feminine heart-shaped design. Set around the heart's border are six colorful gemstones, whose first letters spell out the word "REGARD", making the ring part of a sentimental Victorian tradition. The ensemble of stones includes a Ruby, an Emerald, a pink Garnet, an Amethyst, a second Ruby, and a Diamond at the top. Each stone round stone is faceted and held within a gold micro prong setting. Featured at the center of the heart is a lovely flower motif, which has delicate emerald petals, a ruby center, and a raised gold stem with leaves. Swirls of wirework spirals decorate the border, the perfect finishing touch! The pendant hangs from a complimentary bail and a fine gold chain, which fastens with a 10kt spring ring clasp in the back. A wonderful and meaningful antique piece, it would make a special gift or a beautiful addition to any collection! The chain measures 18" long, and the pendant hangs 1 3/8" long at the center (including the bail). The heart pendant measures 1 1/8" tall and wide, and 1/4" thick. The total pennyweight of the piece is 5.4 dwt (8.5 grams).
