Object Description

A beautiful platinum and multi-gem set giardinetto pendant c.1910, the pendant designed as a long tapering openwork basket with rope twist handle finely crafted in platinum and set throughout with old-cut diamonds, filled with a generous bouquet of flowers set with rubies, emeralds and diamonds in 18ct gold and platinum with millegrain edge details, all suspended from a ribbon loop tied in a bow, beneath the basket hangs a single pear shaped diamond in millegrained bezel setting, all from a later 18” platinum trace chain. The word giardinetto means ‘little garden’ in Italian and is used to describe jewels such as this with vases or baskets containing flowers. Rings in this style were particularly popular during the Georgian period whilst brooches and pendants dominated the Edwardian period’s interpretation of this design. This is a wonderful example of its type, delicate and elegant with a lightness of touch and naturalistic feel.
