The Pendant - Brooch Transformable : The Story of Romantic Antique Jewelry

Gold and citrine pendant- brooch, the romantic jewel par excellence

Romantic jewelry is loved and cherished before it is expensive. These jewels created between the years 1820 to 1850 change the rules of jewelry until now heavy. The era was romantic: people frequented salons, displayed their passions and adorned themselves in their finest finery to convey softness and femininity. The art of adornment developed and dazzling techniques appeared such as cannetille, repoussé or stamping allowing the creation of antique jewelry with less material, at a lower cost while preserving their luxurious aspect.

In addition to exceptional gems, delicate citrines, amethysts, topaz and garnets with shimmering transparencies and shades are preferred. 

French romanticism is enriched by this art and the bright receptions and evenings at the Opera are the places where one shows off these elegant and sumptuous antique jewels.

The transformable antique jewel : the elegance of the 19th century jewelry

The only element that has come down to us from a set that must have been much more complete, this transformable antique jewel is both a brooch thanks to the pin on the back and a pendant thanks to the two loops on the back of the jewel, allowing a chain to be passed through. This jewel full of history is presented here with a large jaseron chain that echoes the volume of this lush pendant. Set with cushion-cut citrines for the main one and pears for the 3 pendants, this jewel is both richly endowed and unparalleled in its lightness. 

Refined, the work of the stamped plant decorations pays tribute to the romantic jewelry of the 1850s during which the naturalist themes were taken up by the great jewelry houses. Perfectly preserved, this jewel is destined for a lover of jewels full of history.
