Ain't Love Grand?  Pearl and Ivory Georgian Pendant

The subject is romantic. The pendant is extremely beautiful Surrounded by rhythmic garlands of natural pearls and a gold oval frame is a portrait on ivory that is curved in the Georgian manner. In sepia, a dreamy young woman with long curly hair sits beside a brook in smiling reverie. She is clothed in a floor length dress, her feet on a stepping stone. Her pet spaniel is by her side. Hand on her face, arm on her knee she catches the moment in pleasant thought. Five will get you twenty that her thoughts are on her lover. The reverse of this pendant is 15kt gold with a closed back that protects the miniature. Ages ago, this was a slide or clasp for a bracelet or necklace. The bale, a later addition, was very well supplied. As jewelry travels on over hundreds of years, it is often modified to be more wearable to a later owner. Beautiful, heart warming, and in excellent condition, this pendant will always remind you of your romance.
