Antique Victorian Cabachon Cut Almandite Garnet Pendant

Pearls dance around an oval cabochon cut almondite garnet in this Victorian pendant with tassels. 15k yellow gold tassels drip from this antique pendant like a shimmering comet shooting through the sky. Lending to this celestial theme is an oval cabochon almandite garnet that is topped with a diamond-studded star. The seven rose and old mine cut diamonds that accent the star total 0.11 carats. Twenty-seven spherical natural half pearls gleam around the Victorian garnet like a crescent moon. Circa 1870

Important information about the following topics -- Jewelry Care, Repairs and Insurance, Special Orders, Jewelry Condition, Gem Treatments, Diamond Grading Reports, Jewelry Classifications, and Warranty -- and are all available by clicking HERE.

Each piece of jewelry is sent off site to be evaluated by an appraiser who is not a Topazery employee and who has earned the GIA Graduate Gemologist diploma as well as the title of AGS Certified Gemologist Appraiser. The gemologist/appraiser's report is included on this page. ° An appraisal is not included with your purchase but we are pleased to provide one upon request for an additional fee. The appraiser bases the value for the jewelry on the range of prices prevailing in the most common and appropriate retail markets on the date the appraisal is completed. ° Diamonds, pearls and colored gemstones are graded by the grading standards as taught by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). All measurements and carat weights are approximate, unless otherwise noted, and are determined without removing the stones from the mounting. ° The process of determining when a jewelry piece is made and the period it belongs to is not an exact science. The determination is based on design, materials, hallmarks, signatures, and the manufacturing method. Circa dates and period assignments are made to the best of our abilities. ° All pearls are cultured unless noted as natural. ° Platinum refers to all metals in the platinum family and the alloys which are mixed with it -- palladium, platinum/iridium, and platinum/ruthenium and platinum/cobalt. ° A non-destructive acid scratch test is used to verify the metal in each jewelry piece. A refractometer is used to test gemstones. ° All gemstones have been treated by accepted industry standards unless noted otherwise. ° Computer monitors show colors differently; please keep in mind that the actual colors in a jewelry piece may be different from the colors displayed in the website photos. ° Jewelry photographs are enlarged to show details. To help you determine if a jewelry piece is appropriate in terms of actual proportions that suit your style as well as the statement you want to make, we provide detailed measurements of the piece. ° Rings are also photographed on a mannequin's hand in a glove size 6. Rings in sizes from 5.0 or smaller are photographed on a mannequin's hand in a glove size of 5.0. ° Jewelry pieces are pre-owned and have been expertly restored unless otherwise noted as new or antique style. ° For special ring orders and antique style or reproduction rings which are new, the diamond and gemstone carat weight, color, clarity, gram weight, as well as other jewelry details may vary from the website specifications.

An order shipped outside the USA includes these non-refundable fees:

  • $ 55.00 -- FEDEX Priority shipping with insurance
  • $ 57.52 -- Special processing fee

FEDEX will send you a separate invoice for customs duties and fees after your purchase has been delivered. Please contact your local customs office regarding the amount of these charges as they are not insignificant.
