Here is a very sweet little pansy pendant! Pansies have been equated with thoughtfulness, free thinking, and deep contemplation. Shakespeare’s Ophelia said "There's pansies, that's for thoughts." This little pansy is made from (tested) 10k gold, with a modern-looking 14k bale, probably the result of a later change. The enamel shades from dark yellow through to white, with some darker details, and a (cultured?) pearl center. It measures 1/2” x 1/2”, and the chain is 16-1/2” and is marked 14k. Together they weigh 1.6g. Really pretty, and in excellent condition. We’re not entirely certain of the age but think the flower is pre-1920. The photos are part of the description; please examine them carefully. We do lay-away. Thanks! Shipping, handling & insurance within the USA included.
