We love enameled pieces, since they provide large pops of color but are a bit more understated than colored gemstones when used to achieve the same effect. This particular Edwardian pendant is made using the labor-intensice Guilloche technique, where intricate designs are carved into the metal, then overlaid with the glass enamel resulting in the pattern seen here (even the back is beautiful!). In this case the robin’s egg blue enamel is ringed with white enamel for contrast, and the center of the pendant is a platinum flower set with rose cut Diamonds and a pearl. This pendant is Edwardian femininity at its finest, measuring 1.25 inches across.
Details: 14k yellow gold and platinum pendant featuring enamel, a pearl and .02ctw rose cut Diamonds, circa 1905.
