Full image caption

An earring or pendant of enamelled gold set with three pale-blue foiled sapphires: the upper pair combined to form a pierced lozenge, and the third, set as a kite-shaped drop. The sapphires, with pyramidal crown facets and flat-laped backs, are flanked by six opals en cabochon and mounted in closed, bracketed, rub-over collets. The collets are enamelled on the back with opaque white and black enamel and the two elements are linked by a gold ring.
