Victorian Era Tassel Pendant with Tracery Enamel in 14k Gold
A Victorian-era pendant, modeled in three colors of 14k gold, and designed with a nine-piece fringe of foxtail chain. This dynamic fringe is riveted into pendant’s central, shield-shaped plaque, which is decorated with fine, engraved, textural details, and black, tracery enamel. This lovely plaque is further embellished with three-dimensional leaves, and is set with a single natural seed pearl that appears to nest between them. The original decorative bail is very cool and functions like clip.

While it is possible this was originally worn as a watch fob on a gentleman's vest-front, it makes an ideal pendant and looks especially fine worn on a long chain.

Notes

Two of the tiny ball ends are missing from the bottom of the chain fringe. This is a small issue and it does not impact the visual effect of the pendant (we missed it on the first pass). Otherwise flawless.
