This week for Antique Tuesday I am featuring Victorian combination pendant/brooch jewelry.
|Circa 1880 - Retail Value $5,058|
The 1880 Griffin brooch/pendant above shows how the clasp actually unscrews to transform into a pendant.
|Circa 1890 - Retail Value $2,862|
In this Victorian diamond rose cut piece the bale folds up to be worn as a pendant or down for a brooch.
|Circa 1850 - Retail Value $7,920|
Thanks to a discreet placed system in the back, the parts that enable this jewel to be worn as a brooch or pendant can be easily switched.
Once again, I would like to thank Adin Fine Antique Jewelry for use of their photos and information. Please visit their site for more examples.
