ANTIQUE VICTORIAN AMETHYST PEARL PENDANT 18CT GOLD CIRCA 1890
This beautiful Antique Victorian pendant has been modelled in 18ct Yellow Gold. The pendant is set with a large central Amethyst which weighs approx. 1.75ct and an Amethyst dropper below weighing approx. 1.60ct. The pendant also features Pearls ornately arranged across it and being used to depict the form of forget me nots around the edge.
Forget me nots in an old German tale were discovered by two lovers walking by a river one day. After picking a beautiful bouquet of blue flowers for his loved one the poor gentleman sadly fell in the river and was swept away but before he vanished he yelled out ‘Forget-me-not!’ giving the flowers their name and a long lasting symbolism of love and remembrance.
A lovely pendant with an equally lovely sentiment which will look gorgeous on a gold chain.
