Absolutely STUNNING and one-of-a-kind Edwardian golden pocket watch conversion pendant! Made of solid 18 KT gold this beautiful pendant used to be a pocket watch lid. Sadly someone decided to part the lid from the watch itself, so we got it as a separate component, which was turned by our master jeweler into this gorgeous pendant.
Such floral basket design is called 'giardinetti' and was very popular in late 1800`s- early 1900`s. The flowers are made from a beautiful mix of rose cut diamonds, turquoise, peridots and seed pearls. A lovely gentle garland set with tiny pearls adorns the diameter of the pendant.
This pendant is a magnificent example of stunning guilloche enamel work! Multiple thin layers form magnificent patterns which curve around the central composition. This technology is very time consuming and hence such jewelry was very costly.
The reverse of the pendant is blank and ca be engraved free of charge. It still carries watch serial number '622' an Makers stamp "GI" or "CI".
It will make a great memorable gift for someone very special or for your beloved self!
