Antique Victorian Turquoise Pearl Diamond Star Pendant 18ct Gold
A magnificent antique Victorian 18ct gold pendant depicting a twelve-pointed star decorated with lustrous natural pearls and polished cabochon turquoise around the outside with a tiered gallery in the centre encrusted with three additional pearls, twinkling diamonds and a ring of turquoise segments ranging from pale blue to emerald green.
Celestial jewellery became increasingly sought after during the 19th Century as people began to look up at the stars and heavens once more with renewed fascination. Stars were a popular lucky charm to be wished upon and were said to guide us on the path to our dreams and our true destiny.
It’s a striking antique find and looks to have started life as a brooch but has since been converted into a wonderful pendant with the addition of a new loop at the back. It would look perfect on the end of a gold chain and showcases a gorgeous array of complementary gemstones.
