Three Renaissance rings. All very interesting. Dated 1580-1620. I love the styles they used back then. Not too many stones, interesting goldwork, well done enameling. Good examples of an early stage of gem cutting style: table cut. #facetinghistory #16thcenturyjewelry #16thcenturyart #renaissance #renaissancering #renaissancejewelry

Rare and wearable late 16th century gold salamander ring. C.1600
Capable, in mythology, of withstanding fire, the salamander became a symbol of immortality, rebirth and passion.
In real life they hibernate in dark and damp places such as in log piles and rotting wood - when wood was brought indoors and put on the fire, the creatures would "mysteriously" appear from the flames. The 16th-century Italian artist and goldsmith Benvenuto Cellini (1500–1571) famously recalled in his autobiography witnessing such an appearance as a child

English Tudor Silver Gilt Devotional Heart Pendant IHC This is a wonderful Tudor period silver-gilt heart-shaped pendant, dating to the late 15th - early 16th century. The pendant is intact with the original lemon gold gilding and suspension loop. This jewel was discovered by a metal detectorist near Winchester, discussed at length on the Portable Antiquities website (BERK-5A089D). Such a piece would have been worn prior to the Reformation by king Henry VIII, or during the Marian counter-Reformation of the mid 16th century. A nice and intact Tudor pendant that can still be worn today! OBJECT: Devotional Pendant

DATE: 1450 - 1550 A.D.

SIZE: 29.4mm x 21.4mm x 6.5mm

Renaissance Silver-gilt Pectoral Crucifix Pendant This is a large and impressive silver-gilt pectoral crucifix pendant, dating to the mid 16th century. The body of the cross is hollow, formed from sheet silver in a pyramidal shape. The corpus is solid and attached to the cross, so too the Skull of Adam at the base of the cross. It is intact with the original suspension ring and mercurial gold gilding. This cross likely originated in Portugal where this type of crucifix was in fashion from the 1550's. A large and very rare survivor from the age of exploration and trade.

MATERIAL: Silver-gilt

SIZE: 101mm (96mm without ring) x 75mm (wide) x 12mm

This is a fabulous Tudor period gold dress-hook, dating to the 16th century. It is decorated as a blooming flower. Originally it would have been set with seed pearls, threaded through the gold wire. The central axel (now bent) would have been set with a large pearl or sapphire. Clothing / dress-hooks, are usually found in bronze, silver, and silver-gilt. This is the first I have recorded to be made of solid gold! A real treasure and certainly a piece worn by a member of royalty or high nobility.

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!
