Victorian Almandite Garnet Pendant

15k yellow gold tassels drip from this vintage jewelry piece 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. This vintage pendant is circa 1870
