Elegance of Antiquity: Georgian Gold and Diamond Cross

An exquisite example of Georgian craftsmanship, this circa 1700 pendant exudes a refined elegance. Celebrating Christian symbolism, its cross form is meticulously adorned with six table cut rose diamonds and four senailles, harmoniously set in 18K yellow gold with silver details. The design, influenced by the opulent Georgian era, reflects the artistic sensibilities of the period, mirroring the rich history of the first four British monarchs of the House of Hanover. This pendant, a testament to its time, is a captivating piece for collectors and connoisseurs of antique jewellery.
