Presented here is a very unusual 18 K Solid Gold pendant, dating back to 1944, in white and yellow 18K gold as well as 4 small diamonds on each corner. Specifications of the medal are as follows :

a) It has measurements of 22 x 14 mm - without bail - and is rectangular, quite scarce for such medals.

b) Its weight is 2.28 grams

c) It is made using the “Plique-à-jour” technique : Plique-à-jour (French for "letting in daylight") is a vitreous enameling technique where the enamel is applied in cells, similar to cloisonné, but with no backing in the final product, so light can shine through the transparent or translucent enamel.

d) The pendant is high relief and made in France. It represents the Virgin Mary in profile, crowned with a gold halo.

e) It is hallmarked with the Eagle's head which is the French hallmark for 18K Gold. 4 small rosette diamonds are present, one in each corner.

f) It has a reverse with a date inscribed : 16 April 1944 which specifically dates it. It also has a monogram R N:

g) It is interesting to note that its date indicates it has been bough in April 1944 which were the worst days economically of WW.II in France, showing that the owner must have been of a quite wealthy family.

Pictures have been taken so that the beautiful Plique-à-jour effect is well seen.

The chain in the picture is NOT gold but Gold plated. It is also vintage but very probably dates back to the 1950's . It is included as a gift in the offer.

This very rare item is highly attractive and extremely well done. In an exceptional as new condition it is definitely a unique heirloom.

Pictures are an intrinsic part of the description . Please use the zoom feature.

Please do not hesitate to ask any question.
