A Georgian Aquamarine And Gold Cannetille Suite

A Georgian aquamarine and gold cannetille suite, the necklace consisting of three emerald-cut aquamarine-set gold links, connected with two oval-cut aquamarine-set clusters, attached to a fine gold mesh chain by three floral links on each side, set with oval-cut aquamarines, with clasp set with an oval-cu aquamarine, the detachable cross pendant centrally-set with a cushion-cut aquamarine and an oval-cut aquamarine set on each arm, the drop earrings set with pear shaped and oval-cut aquamarines, all mounted in yellow gold, circa 1800, accompanied by original fitted box, the necklace measuring approximately 42 x 2.3cm, the cross measuring approximately 6 x 5.2cm and the earrings measuring approximately 6.8 x 1.7cm, gross weight 75.5 grams.

An exquisite and intricate suite. This suite features detailed cannetille, a technique used frequently in the early nineteenth century. The detailed openwork gold surrounds an arrangement of faceted aquamarine, which provides a beautiful contrast to the bright yellow gold. This set features a necklace with a magnificent pendant and a pair of dramatic earrings. A wonderful and historic set.
