Georgian 15ct Gold & Pansy Motif Pendant with Locket Back

Sold

770G

A pretty late Georgian pendant in a heart shape with a locket section on the reverse. The pansy which literally means “Pense a moi” “Thinking of you”, a pun on the word “Pansy” is set with pale amethysts. It has raised leaf work around it and a punch work background as a contrast to the plain gold decorated leaf outer edge. It was originally a gift of love in 1820.
