Dainty Victorian Era Heart Pendant with Pearl & Star in 9k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A charming, Victorian era heart pendant, modeled in 9k rosy yellow gold. This classic puffed heart is beautifully and substantially made— it has a lovely form, with smooth edges, and thick-walled construction. An expressively-carved, eight-pointed star rests at the center of this heart, where it holds a silvery, semi-baroque seed pearl. This is a wonderful, easy-to-wear, everyday pendant, especially for someone who tends to worry their charms and pendants for comfort! The smooth, time-worn surface of the heart, contrasted with the natural, irregular texture of the little pearl makes this pendant extra good. The pendant's large bail is oriented to accept a chain, cord, or ribbon, so this is not equipped with a jump ring.
c. 1880 - 1900
