Our master jewelers have designed and set this unique and incredibly detailed piece in 18k solid gold to echo the intricate filigree border fretting of the mother of pearl and mounted the jewel to allow it to be worn on either side. This captivating detail will draw envious eyes whenever worn.

This incredible piece of history, details Baron Borrowes of Gilltown County Kildare Ireland for whom this was commissioned circa 1810 – 1830. Words are insufficient to describe the detail achieved by its artist.

The outer border itself shows incredible artistry with scrolling leaves, stems and flowers. It immediately draws the eyes to the detail of the deep carved crest of a crowned lion in the center, highlighted further by the back hatching. Outside the inner circle, the detail is equally breathtaking with flowers, pagodas, a bird and dog. Simply stunning.

The other side is equally intricate in its craftsmanship depicting a deeply carved scene with two children playing what appears to be football.

From an era of perfection by the artistry and craftsmanship that would be unable to replicate, this mother of pearl hand carved jewel of singular beauty like no other, will rightfully become an unrivaled investment and family heirloom to delight for life.

Simply exquisite.
