This Victorian French porcelain painted pendant / brooch and earring set are in incredible condition. The earrings depict the same image, with a young girl holding a basket of flowers. The pendant / brooch depicts a woman with her dress carried up as if she was walking through water so she wouldn't get her dress wet and carrying a basket. The detail is beautifully hand rendered on the painted porcelain and the gold filigree.  The porcelain is backed by abalone shell. The earrings are hinged in 2 places so they have graceful movement when worn.

  • Bracelets and rings get the most wear out of all the styles of jewelry. Make sure that your jewelry is professionally cleaned and your stones checked annually. For high value items, typically of $1,000, it is a good idea to have your pieces insured on your homeowners policy or with a separate insurer like Jewelers Mutual.
