A handsome Victorian Holbeinesque pendant. Holbeinesque is a term used to describe Victorian jewellery that was made in the style of the Renaissance, particularly inspired by the Northern Renaissance and the paintings of Hans Holbein. Holbein himself produced sketches of the jewellery worn at the Tudor court, and the sketches were used as reference points by Victorian jewellery designers and craftsmen. This pendant is a spectacular example of this style, featuring colourful green and red enamel, verdant emeralds, lustrous pearls, and dazzling diamonds. The ornate style of this piece reflects the high Victorian interest in Renaissance revival jewellery.
