A beautiful Victorian carved Whitby jet pendant depicting a rose, the everlasting symbol of love. The pendant is tear drop shaped and deeply carved with lots of dimension.
It is constructed in two pieces with a wide fan shaped faceted jet bail which is attached to the rose with a silver bead pin. The top of the pendant features a cut out pierced design that is a classic carved motif in Victorian jet jewelry.
