Using a ship's wheel and a blindfolded mermaid to highlight a nautical theme, this lovely pendant or brooch is large, finely decorated, and quite heavy. It's so unusual we believe it was likely custom-made in a European jeweler's studio as evidenced by a trombone clasp and the "750" hallmark indicating 18 carat gold. Under a loop the enameling is intact and well done, featuring a flower, a young woman's blindfolded profile that displays much depth as well as symbols of card suits to include heart, club, diamond and spade. Each symbol is separated by a small enamel circle -- one dot shows slight enamel loss. There may have been a tiny gemstone in the flower, but we are not sure of that. Although, we are sure this pendant or brooch is a beautiful gold artwork of substance -- weighing 19.5 penny weights or just under an ounce. It measures 2-1/4" across. Marked: 750 within a diamond
