A stunning girandole pendant, ca. 1760, which has been created in tri-part design.

From the round top section is suspended a bow-knot of three oval sections; suspended from the bow-knot are three  pendeloque, pear-shaped drop pendants, the central drop larger than the two sides.

This design was originally seen in the court of Louis XIV in the 1600’s, and stayed in fashion for over a century.

The gilt metal pendant has been set with flat-cut, faceted rose pastes, and each of the seven stones has a garnet halo surround (also see earrings #25624).

A bail at the verso of the top section allows it to be suspended from a ribbon or chain.

The pendant measures 2-3/4" overall and is 2" at its widest point.

Absolutely fabulous, and in lovely condition!
