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

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!

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)
For similar examples see Dalton, Catalogue of the ringer rings in the British Museum numbers 1989/90 and Oman, Catalogue of rings in the Victoria and Albert Museum number 312
