Covered with tiny turquoise cabochons, decorated with flat cut garnets and lustrous seed pearls - this pendant it so colourful and so stunning. With the stylised grapewines and leaves as a playful backdrop to the garnet and pearl elements you can easily imagine that these were designed to remind of bunches of grapes.

Mostly constructed in silver, but with remnants of gilding to the back, this Austro-Hungarian pendant was made in the last half of the 19th century and has been well loved and re-worked. Parts have been added, like the garnet and pearl drop at the bottom of the pendant, and the hook shaped bale is likely a re-worked ear wire. It's very likely that this beauty began it's life as a girandole earring. Now the generous hook shaped bale makes it possible to wear this beauty on a thicker chain or a beaded necklace, as-well as on a more delicate chain.

Approximately 4 cm high and 3,5 cm wide, weight 7,6 grams.

In good antique condition, general surface wear in keeping with age, a few turquoises with chipping and a couple have been replaced, additions made which can be seen to the back where you find some solder. None of the additions made to the back are visible when they piece is worn.

A beautiful pendant, full of history, colour and with a very three-dimensional feeling to it. Fun and easy to mix and match with different kinds of chains and necklaces.
