Availability:


  • Antique Victorian 9 ct gold cameo pendant of Bacchant, a priestess or female votary of Bacchus (4 cm x 3.5 cm)

  • 2 graduated, faceted strands of rare Tanzanite (3-8.4 mm). The mines in Tanzania no longer yield these gems, hence its rarity

  • Vintage (now rare) handmade, 18 ct gold on hardened resin beads from Afghanistan (7.5 mm and 6.3 mm)

  • These Afghan beads (now rare) use ancient techniques. The Afghani have been crafting gold for centuries. When Alexander the Great came to Afghanistan in 330 BC, his people brought many skills, one of which was working in gold. Like the Romans, centuries later, a yellow, 18 ct gold was used. But one of their techniques was to take sheet gold and work it onto hardened resin and then decorate it accordingly. This handiwork and the yellow gold colour give the necklace warmth and character and complements the gems. Sadly, these are now rare beads. Like all antiques, the supply can cease

  • 14 ct gold clasp

  • length 47cm with 4.5cm pendant drop
