Vintage 18kt Large Rock Quartz Crystal + Garnet Pendant
A fabulous and fun Vintage rock crystal and garnet pendant! This funky piece is particularly substantial in size and comprised of a solid rock crystal stone that is set within an 18kt yellow gold frame. The rock crystal has an egg-like shape and features 11 bezel set garnet cabochons which line the entire outer gold frame. A large gold bail is attached at the top of the pendant, making it easy to attach to a complimentary gold chain and the bail is stamped "18K" and "JG." It is a fabulous piece and would be a wonderful addition to any collection!
Measurements: The large pendant hangs 2 3/4" long and measures approximately 1 3/4" at the widest point. The gold banding measures 1/4" wide. The garnet cabochons are approximately 3/16" in diameter. The pendant weighs 67.3 grams.
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant is very good. There is some surface wear to the rock crystal center which is commensurate with age and does not detract from the beauty of the design. Additionally, there is a naturally occurring inclusion with the crystal, however, it is primarily only visible from one side and hardly noticeable when worn. There is no apparent damage to the gold setting or the garnet stones. The bail is intact and securely set.
