Antique Australian Edwardian 9ct Yellow Amethyst Pearl Pendant/Brooch

Collections: Sold Archive

Charming combination pendant / brooch dating to the first decades of the 20th century.

Crafted from 9ct yellow gold and set to the centre with a natural pale to medium Amethyst which is six claw set to a frame resembling a bow or floral garland which is set with imitation (we believe) half seed Pearls.

To the verso is a hidden ’S’ shaped bale to which is attached another small oval jump ring which will accommodate a fine chain with a small fine clasp.  Another larger jump ring could easily be added if desired.

Retaining its original C clasp fitting and pin (pin is not gold but original) and stamped with a 9ct stamp and an indistinct mark which appears to be an ‘R’ leading us to believe this piece is early Australian and by Robert Rollason as this was his stamp.
A charming early piece and priced to reflect the three Pearls which appear to be replacements.

‘R’ (We believe) / 9ct
 Good antique condition.  Amethyst is excellent with no chips or abrasions and claws are very secure.  No repairs to be seen, C Clasp is original, pin appears to be original but not gold - gold fill or similar.  Three Pearls appear to be replacements and this can be seen in photos, much less noticeable to the naked eye.
