Lapis lazuli, although rare at this date, occurs in contemporary inventories of jewels and probably came from Afghanistan; Chain of almandine garnets with fancy-cut fronts and trap-cut backs in rectangular gold settings enamelled white; the garnets are linked by flowers decorated in cloisonne opaque enamel with white petals and blue centres; Gold chain, possibly a bracelet, enamelled and set with pearls and trap-cut rubies; Chain, gold with alternate roses and vine leaves linked by loops and staples.
