This is a gorgeous early piece circa 1840. It has a cannetille bezel and it is a cruciform motif with four beautiful pink topaz crystals, they are paste but the color is fabulous. The piece has a bail to be worn as a pendant as well as an early tube style hing and C clasp to be worn as a brooch. It measures 1.75 inches. The stones have some surface wear and there might be a bit of metal missing at one end hard to tell with this kind of motif. Really gorgeous early piece and a nice addition to any collection.
