Antique Edwardian Gemstone Harlequin Pendant Necklace


A fabulous antique Edwardian Harlequin pendant depicting a wreath of diamonds and colourful gemstones, including a green peridot, orange citrine, yellow paste, pink topaz and blue sapphire (approx. 0.20ct each). A beautiful cushion-cut Ceylon sapphire is also suspended in the centre (approx. 1ct) with a hot-pink sapphire dangling from the bottom (approx. 0.25ct).  

Harlequin jewellery is named after the colourful costumes of the 16th century comedy actors of the same name. The style was popular during the 19th Century and saw wonderful pieces of jewellery abundantly decorated in coloured gemstones. 

The pendant is fashioned in silver and 9ct gold and features beautiful, foliate workmanship and a bow at the bottom. It dates to the early 1900s and comes with a new 18ct gold chain to display it on.
