Antique Bohemian garnet pendant. Victorian, genuine Bohemian garnets.
This is an antique piece from around 1900 (verified as genuine antique Bohemian garnet by the Austrian auction house that we sourced it from). These old Bohemian garnets have a wonderful deep blood red colour - by candlelight they take on a particularly romantic glow.
The pendant is in lovely condition and has a good large stone in the centre which gives it quite a lavish look. It has a really nice three-dimensional design.
- About 2.5 cm across (one inch).
- Probably tombak, which is an alloy made to look like silver - very commonly used in antique Bohemian garnet jewellery.
- Nice bale at the top - this looks as though it is probably 9 karat gold.
