This exquisite antique 18ct gold, turquoise and old mine cut diamond pendant is a captivating example of jewellery crafted at the height of the Etruscan Revival craze that occurred in the high Victorian era.
Recreated to look like the ancient jewellery found during archaeological excavations this luxurious bright yellow gold pendant features not just one, but two high mounded domes of vivid blue turquoise gemstones that are pave set. Beautiful old mine cut diamonds nest in the centre of each. Not to be outdone intricate gold twisted wire-work, cannetille and tassels add to the incredible ornamentation and colour contrast.
Crafted in a pendant drop style with a convenient fixed loop bale in the back to thread your fine gold chain through, this piece has immense appeal and just oozes Archaeological Revival pizzazz!
