This is a 'piece de resistance' of a jewel.
A wonderful and unusual early Victorian pendant made from 18 carat yellow gold with fine canatille work and lovely, well matched, natural faceted green chrysoberyl stones. This is a rare stone from the beryl family. They look similar to peridots but have an extra luminosity and are a delicate green colour. The colour change Chrysoberyl is the extremely rare and wonderful Alexandrite stone which changes from ruby red to emerald green depending on natural or artificial light it is regarded in..
This pendant is English in origin, as it is not backed in, would date back to the circa 1880 mark.
The pendant itself is a stylised Maltese cross shape and with a delicate look enhanced by the canatille worked gold, and of course, by the gorgeous, glowing stones.
