My beautiful tudor necklace 🌿👑 I bought it in the Tower of London Shop. It was part of a collection from six jewelry sets. Each of them for one of Henry VIII. wifes. This pendant is the one from Catherine Howard!

This beautiful ring from queen Elisabeth I. tells a wondeful story. The mother-of-pearl ring has rubies in the band and diamonds on the top. The Secret: its hiding two miniature enamel portraits, one showing Elisabeth and the other believed to be her mother...Anne Boleyn! 🌠

Rare late 16th to early 17th century enamelled gold reliquary cross pendant. Spanish or possibly German, c 1580-1600.
Quite heavy-weight weighing over 44g and monochrome enamelled entirely, this has six windows covered with a rock-crystal cabochon, each revealing a holy relic. The enclosure has been riveted shut and will remain so. There are some slight losses to the enamel but only commensurate with age
77mm long, 43mm wide

Recently, many of you asked me to assess some renaissance rings found online (which still makes me feel a bit inadequate but I always try to help). Unfortunately, most of them are copies or mispresented. #figuralfriday #antiquering #ringaddict
NOT THIS ONE 💟 💟 💟 ・・・ A rare survival, seldom seen outside of major collections;
Enamelled gold and crystal ring c.1590. The bezel containing two table-cut crystals imitating diamonds, held by a gold bird's claw to each corner. The underside of the bezel with black enamel decoration, the shoulders similarly monochrome enamelled.
Overall condition good to very good - commensurate with age
Finger size 8 (UK P)
