Rare 17th Century Moghul Pendant

Moghul jewelry is exceedingly rare, having been "recycled" for its pure gold and fine gemstones during centuries of war and political upheaval. This exquisite example of Persian artistry has a central floral motif set with diamonds on a pavee of rubies. Each of the eight points of its star are set with diamond., sapphires, an emerald, a carnelian, a topaz and a pearl. The finely detailed back features a champlevee design of a bird and floral motifs. Circa 1630.
