James tells us about this beautiful 1930s pendant and brooch
A beautiful piece of 1930s jewellery
Using our trade connections in London’s Hatton Garden and the principal trade centres in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, we attempt to bring quality items at affordable prices to our customers.
The search for quality items of jewellery is becoming ever more challenging. Due to their rarity, Georgian foil-backed items are always desired.
Trade sources have long been noting the rising prices of the finest quality pieces of jewellery, as many have been disregarded and broken up or refashioned due to the latest trends.
Tiaras and diadems are a classic example of jewellery being remodelling or upcycled. We have long said that the golden era for jewellery were the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods and subsequently the pre-Second World War period.
One item we would like to showcase is our exquisite period (circa 1930) natural freshwater pearl and diamond pendant and brooch. It provides the wearer with the flexibility and option of either wearing as a fine pendant to accentuate the neckline when wearing a ball gown or evening dress, or as a brooch for a top coat when attending any society social occasion.
The old-cut diamonds provide the ultimate dazzle to this fine piece of jewellery. The central pearl measures approximately 8mm by 6.2mm and is surrounded by a mille grain wreath and floral laurel garland with open foil work bow motif.
The diamonds are estimated to have a total carat weight of approximately 1.2cts. The entire pendant is set in the finest handcrafted 18k (750) white gold.
The 18k white gold chain is detachable, enabling the folding bale to be concealed and
allowing the wearer the option of using the pendant as a stunning brooch.
The unique bespoke antique emerald green leather-bound box with emblazoned gold leaf has been refurbished by the finest craftsmen. The outline contour of the pendant has been re-countersunk, enabling the pendant to sit perfectly within it.

We would be thrilled to view your items. We offer a full and comprehensive valuation service with the cost being a donation to the East Anglia Air Ambulance a truly worthy charity.
