A beautifully modelled dove that is holding a quatrefoil drop set with natural split pearls. It is known as a Saint Esprit that translates as the Holy Ghost and is a dove shaped religious symbol. St Esprit jewels were popular in the late eighteenth century as religious icons. They were particularly popular in France but there are English examples and this is one of them. It is two colour gold and has been set with graded turquoise that underlines the message “Forget me not” after the flower of the same name. On the reverse is a glazed locket that may have contained hair. It is suspended on a 15ct gold chain which is a later addition.
