Georgie & Arthur Gaskin early 20th century silver gem-set pendant.
Heart-shape chrysoprase with natural inclusion that reminds me of symbolism of a broken heart, suspended within a heart-shape surround, with colourless gem foliate sides and drop. I haven't bothered to test the colourless gems but they will be rock crystal or colourless topaz.
Unmarked but almost identical to a piece that was shown at the recent G&A Gaskin exhibition at the Court Barn Museum 2013 (that pendant was the same minus the colourless gems on this piece).
