Victorian Diamond Witches Heart Pendant

Victorian Diamond Witches Heart Pendant

$550.00


Description

DATE: Victorian, 1876

A particularly cool (and quite unusual) puffed Witches Heart pendant set with a diamond in the centre. A popular motif throughout the Georgian and early Victorian eras, the witches heart features a curved point at the bottom, and implied that the giver had become "bewitched" to fall in love with the recipient... in ancient times the heart was allegedly used to ward off witches and other evil spirits. This one is set with a diamond in star setting, modelled in 15 karat gold, and dates from 1876 with Birmingham hallmarks still present to the reverse.
