A spectacular, large Victorian pendant with a micromosaic panel depicting an Egyptian scarab. These micromosaic panels were typically souvenirs brought home from Italy during Grand Tours in the 19th century. At home they were incorporated into jewelry and worn as status symbols. The frame is intricately detailed with a drop panel supporting seven torpedo-shaped pendants. In 14K gold and dating to the 1880s.

It sure looks like a 17th century ring. But Victorian jewelers were fascinated with Renaissance designs and reproductions were popular in the late 19th century. This ring has a table cut in a box shaped bezel surrounded by black and white enamel decoration. The construction and styling is consistent with 17th century designs, but the karat of the gold suggests it may be more likely a Victorian reproduction.
