In remarkable condition, this stunning ancient pendant is formed in a well-detailed floral shape and set with a ruby red cabochon stone (presumably glass). It's most unusual to find an item of such antiquity still containing a stone, let alone one in splendid condition, but the overlapped edge of the mounting indicates it's original. I can't see any way that it could have been replaced.

The jewel is between 1700 and 2000 years old, made of lead which has developed rich patina and luster through the centuries. It measures 30 mm (nearly 1 1/4")in diameter and comes strung on a lanyard, as it was probably worn originally.

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping, with an equivalent discount on international delivery, and gift-wrap is always and gift-wrap is always free when desired. Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!
