"If jewerly could only talk". A phrase we hear every now and then from our customers, and then they wonder where the piece have been and what has happened to it in its history. Although this beautiful à la Jeannette pendant can't speak we do know part of its history.
It was (and is) not uncommon with certain pieces of jewelry to be cut in two, three or even more pieces to avoid any hassle over an heritage. So was the case with this pendant. We bought it from a retired jeweller from a very little town who told us that he had bought the three pieces separate from three sisters who had it cut up in three when their parents past away. There were some 15 years between buying the first and the last part. Luckily enough the goldsmith who had separated them, had it done with great skill and respect for the piece itself so when the jeweller got all three pieces together, it was not a big work to make it into one piece again.
