Victorian 12ct Gold Diamond and Banded Agate Pendant
An original early Victorian banded agate from around 1850 with a mine cut diamond set in the centre of a 12ct gold star. The mount is also 12ct Gold, beginning it's life as a brooch. We have removed the pin to make it into a pendant and it now hangs from a 9ct Gold vintage belcher chain.
Originally the back of the brooch would have had a small glass compartment for a lock of hair but this is missing (see photos). It doesn't have any impact on the beauty of this piece, just adds to it's originality & uniqueness. and if the reverse glass was still with the piece the price would be considerably higher !
All Badger's Velvet jewels are one off pieces made using vintage finds sourced around the world then remodelled by our Oxford goldsmith into beautiful contemporary pieces.
