Everything in balance

Romantic gold & diamond putti pendant, England circa 1900

Two small putti hold a swinging ribbon richly decorated with delicately engraved roses. They stand on the symmetrically folding ends and appear to balance on them. Small rose-cut diamonds adorn the ribbon and a large rosette-shaped pendant, centrally bearing another diamond rose in a silver setting, is movably attached to the arrangement. At the top, a small chain mediates to the gold chain and reinforces the swing motif of the jewelry. It is an unusual object made of gold and a total of six small diamonds that plays on the idea of balance with its rocking or seesaw motif. The pendant found its way to us in London and it dates back to Victorian times, only we added the gold chain in a matching pattern. An unusual piece of jewelry for balanced ladies or those in search of inner balance - who knows? Maybe the balanced puttend abei can help?
