    I'm so happy to have found this brooch/pendant, It seems as if it has taken me forever to find one. I'm a great admirer of Georgian Jewellery I do have a few pieces. I was very lucky to come across this at a price I could afford.
    I think it is a la Jeannette brooch/pendant, I'm sure Agram.m will identify this for me, if it is a a la Jeannette I believe they come from France and Belgium
    I tested this piece and it tested for 18 ct gold there are 6 Diamonds which I also tested and they are Diamonds. This piece is in lovely condition for its age. I looked long and hard before buying this, people will remember my disaster with a pair of Georgian earrings, I bought when I first joined CW.
    All the filligree is in place and the Diamonds are all in secure mounts. It's about 6.2 cm high and about 4 cm wide at its widest point, and weighs approx 8.5 grams. As you can see there are three parts to it.
    Many thanks for looking

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfvano47YxQ. Definitely a La Jeanette in my mind.
      Simply stunning. Congratulations.

      This is a interesting article. I'm still myself confused.

      Many thanks to inky, Kyra, bella Epoque and Gillian for lovely comments and links. I'm still confused between Croix a la Jeannette and Croix Papillon. The link I have put on above says the Croix a la Jeannette is from Belgium, and the Croix Papllon ( Butterfly Cross) is of the North of Normandy. More or less the same type of cross.

      Hi Kyra, thanks for your link above, so this piece is Croix Papllon, hopefully I've got it right this time, fingers crossed.

      Beautiful the same as mine but I that's a pendant. A large and well-known Belgian jewelry store called this jewelry Croix a la Jeanette . That's why I named mine Croix a la Jeanette. Perhaps this jewel in France has a different name. See:

      Many thanks Agram.m for your link, I'm still confused, lol your probably right that the name is different in each country.
    12. kyratango kyratango, 3 years ago
      Agram, it would not be the first time sellers misname an item!
      Specially for such special pieces as regional/peasant jewellery.

      An error then become a truth as people keep on the misnaming (thanks internet)!

      Lang antiques give a description of Jeannette cross:
      http://www.langantiques.com/university/index.php/Croix_a_la_Jeanette

      They are named from St Jean day, which was beginning of employment in rural world, the young girls used their first money earned to buy these crosses.
      It marked their entry in adult world :-)

      Ha Jean, I even didn't realize before, LOL!
    14. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 3 years ago
      Hi Kyra, I've just realised I spelled cross wrong, so I'll shall start again. Wow I've got a cross named after me lol. Checked the spellings all correct.
    15. Agram.m Agram.m, 3 years ago
      In Belgium they are know as Croix a la Jeanette, and Adin. be is Belgium for Anvers. See link:
