French Regency St Esprit Necklace Set With Diamonds, Opals & Rubies




A fantastic 18ct gold necklace that was made in 1800-1820 in France. The term “Saint Esprit” translates as the Holy Ghost and is a dove shaped religious symbol. It was a popular motif in the late eighteenth century as a religious icon, particularly in France. This necklace has a rose design above the dove which is set with rubies, rose diamonds and two opals. It has a flat woven 18ct gold chain that terminates in a clasp designed as a rose and is set with more rubies and an opal. It is finely made and a lovely example of an early French piece of jewellery. It can also be worn as a brooch. There is also a pair of earrings to match in the earrings section on the site.
