A larger panel pendulates from the crown, set with a large central emerald-cut peridot, surrounded by a pierced setting featuring six 'flowers', each with a single rose-cut diamond at the centre. A further foliage style panel, set with three rose-cut diamonds, swings from the bottom. To the reverse, the piece is hand finished with detailed engraving work.
