This wonderful pendant looks like lace. It's made of rose gold with little silver ornaments and built up in 3 sections. There are six larger rose cut diamonds and a lot of very tiny ones. As you can see on the last picture there are two hinges and three parts and I'v put the pendant on a velvet strap.
When I placed this pendant already two years ago on Collectorsweekly I did'nt know what origin, the name and so on. But this has changed nowadays. Therefore I will give you more details of this beautiful pendant.
The name of this beautiful pendant is: Croix or Pendant à la Jeannette.
Period: ca. the last half of the 18th century! In gold with silver details and Rose cut dimamonds. This pendant is typically Belgian from the late 18th till mid-19th century. They are called: à la Jeannette'. Although these type of jewelry are "born" as pendant, many times changed in brooches or divided in smaller pendants.It was (and is) not uncommon with certain pieces of jewelry to be cut in two, three or even more pieces to avoid any hassle over an heritage But of course I'm happy that my pendant is in original state, don't you agree??
