Date: second half of 18th c, probably c. 1775-1800
Materials: quartz, solid silver, solid 14k gold (bail only)
Workmanship origin: Portuguese
Weight: 13.8 grams
Diameter of pendant: 35.5 mm
Depth of pendant: 10 mm
Condition: Back bail is a modern addition. Small 2 mm flat chip to the tip of one of the triangular stones. A shallow and smooth cleavage chip to the side of one quartz (very hard to spot, as it looks like a facet). Age-related surface wear throughout; stones look sharp to the naked eye, but carry subtle age abrasions to facet junctions under loupe magnification. Subtle nibbling to the collet bezels. Age-related oxidation and tarnish to the silver throughout.
