Carved Garnet & Old Mine Cut Diamond Pansy Pendant in 14k Gold

A dainty garnet pendant, masterfully carved in the likeness of a pansy, and set with a chunky little old mine cut diamond. This purplish-red garnet is especially beautiful, with rich color and fine clarity. The central old mine cut diamond is held in a six prong setting, which also serves as the connecting point for the decorative bail. This little flower is beautifully made and preserved. Pansy flowers symbolized a "think of me" sentiment during the victorian era, when this pendant was made you might wear this pansy to remember someone or something that's very important to you. All original. We believe this pendant is Russian in origin.
