Victorian Luckenboothe with 6.27ct Amethyst

This piece has sold out.

 

This version of Victorian Luckenboothe Pendant is sterling and 14kt Rose gold and Rob has added a stunning Amethyst in a basket setting at the bottom. The gem is a pear shape faceted stone that is 6.27ct and 16x10mm.

The pendant measures just under 2 inches long and just under 1 inch wide.

The earliest known examples of the luckenboothe design date back to 1503 and were traditionally sold from the stalls and shops of the jewellery and trinket merchants. Traditionally used as a token of love, luckenboothes were often passed down from mother to daughter or given to a partner as a token of love in much the same way as wedding and engagement rings are given today.
