Edwardian garnet pendant
Another fabulous Edwardian lavaliere pendant garnets and pearls. Hand crafted in 9ct gold with both garnets set in articulated drop settings. The garnets are not matched in colour as they are different types of the garnet. The centre piece being Almandine, the most commonly seen colour of garnet, and the lower dropper being a Rhodolite garnet. Rhodolite garnet is very close to the colour of Amethyst. How can we tell the two apart? Garnet is singularly refractive while amethyst is doubly refractive. A simple bit of gemological kit and we can easily tell them apart. The pendant is pictured on an original Edwardian chain and is included in the price. Please do get in contact with us to discuss possibilities of alternative chains or if you would like a price without the chain.
