Edwardian Spider Pendant
Description: Edwardian gold gemstone set spider pendant.
Metal: Tests indicate 15ct gold.
Marks: Unmarked. There are plenty of styles of old jewellery that would never have been hallmarked. This most likely would have been omitted from hallmarking thanks to it’s delicate construction. The act of punching a hallmark would significantly damage the article. Nowadays with laser engraving this is not true of newly made delicate items.
Stones: Near certainty that the eyes are ruby. They are too small to really to extensive testing in. Peridot head, amethyst body.
Measurements: Excluding the ring at the top the main body of the pendant measures 31 x 21mm.
Weight: 3 grams.
