Antique Victorian Edwardian Sterling Silver Seed Pearl Paste Cross Pendant Charm
Made during the 1910's, this detailed cross pendant is airy and delicate but given prominence from the striking color of the vibrant green paste stones. The sterling silver setting is thin and will lay flush when worn with a feather-light feel at a petite size that can be worn as a pendant or larger sized charm. A narrow row of inset seed pearls offer creamy light and millegrain borders in the setting give a tiny touch of shimmer. This piece is fresh looking and must have been tucked away and well. Taken care of or worn infrequently. The silver setting has a bright patina with very little surface wear and no dents or irregularities.

The glass cabochons and pearls are all in place and look original with minimal surface wear and no chips. There are no irregularities to the setting or signs of solder or repair and the piece has a firm shape. Secure, and original (bale loop is a replacement).

Material Sterling silver, glass, natural seed pearls. Symbolism in antique and vintage jewelry is common, yet it can be hard to spot if you dont know what youre looking for. Often, specific natural gemstones, flowers, birds, and motifs like stars and anchors were imbued with meanings that have fallen out of present-day societys collective memory. To appreciate the power of symbols in antique jewelry is to imagine what it would have been like to wear the piece and step back into history. Miniature versions of classic antique and vintage styles are especially collectable.

Not only are these small pieces charming, but they also require an advanced level of craftsmanship to render all the tiny details. _gsrx_vers_1233 GS 8.1.1 (1233).
