Early 19th Century Belgian gold diamond la Jeannette pendant

The filigree frills of this 18K yellow gold pendant from 1820 guide you through a heart-shaped surmount and a twofold Latin cross depicted by four senailles in a domed foil setting. This typical Belgian adornment, called a croix " la Jeanette", exudes heritage and romance through the senaille-embellished roses and petals scattered over the ethereal curls.
