Pendant by Robert Phillips

Item Description

Quite fabulous pendant crafted in 18 ct. gold by Robert Phillips (1810-1881), a master goldsmith and jeweller who also worked alonside his brother Magnus Albert Phillipa as Phillips Bros.

Robert was known as a highly skilled crafstsman who made much of his keenly sought after jewellery in the revivalist style.

This pendant, with its quatrefoil outline, features a large Brazilian Imperial topaz set in the centre and is detailed on the four surrounding lobes with very finely worked gold outlined swags and blue and black enamel.

Pearls sit in each axis, with a tiny enamelled detail in blue and yellow at their tops, and the pendant is completed with a pearl drop at the foot.

The topaz stone has been verified by a Hatton Garden gem specialist who informed us that it has a weight of approximately 18 ct.

Robert Phillip’s mark can be seen on the back of the bale and the pendant measures 5 cms. in length (including the bale) with the 18 ct. gold necklace chain having a length of 52 cms.

N.B. Robert Phillips, sometimes known as the English Castellani, won a gold medal for his jewellery at the 1867 Paris Exhibition and examples of his work can be found in the British Museum, the Ashmolean and Fitzwilliam Museums.
