An exquisite cabochon cut oval Bohemian garnet of at least 6 carats graces this beautiful Victorian 9ct gold pendant necklace.

The stone is superb, a juicy pomegranate seed red with flashes of deep pink. This luscious gem is bezel set into a yellow gold fairly deep mount that is engraved in a pretty floral pattern with cut out decorative edges. Rose gold scroll work adorns the top and the pendant suspends from a rose gold antique Belcher/rolo chain.

A glass covered 'locket' compartment in the back still contains a dense curl of dark brown hair. The chain has elegant round links decorated in a diamond cut pattern and it fastens with a bolt ring catch, it is a good sturdy weight and gauge to support the pendant which is a fairly substantial piece.

The pendant also has a wide bore gold bail for wear on a ribbon, instead of the chain, should you wish to vary the look.

Gorgeous all original Victorian jewel - the presence of hair hinting that this was once a sentimental love token, perhaps even a memorial jewel - friendship, devotion and compassion are all associated with the ruby red garnet, the romantic birthstone of January!

GEMSTONE: Natural garnet, tested with the Presidium, measures 16x12mm

DATE: Victorian, circa 1870.
