This fabulous Georgian Antique Sterling silver necklace is beautiful set with decorated silver ornate panels that lead to a blue enamel witches heart.

A large paste set witches heart that is set with a red paste stone at the top The lovely Old Cut Paste stones chase around the witches heart and set into the bow top gallery of the pendant.

Witch's Heart : a heart with a curved point or a witch's heart, is loaded with symbolism.

This style of amulet / charms use dates back to the 14th and 15th centuries.

Over time the meaning has changed.

In the 18th century they were viewed as tokens of love and affection and brought with it the implication that the giver had become “bewitched to fall in love” with the recipient.

In earlier times, they were often used as protective amulets, to guard the wearer from evil.

Often the brooch was worn hidden in clothing and worn by those who were considered particularly susceptible to harm from evil spirits or fairy folk.

The clasp is concealed in a lovely engraved box fastener complete with safety chain.

This is a fabulous piece of Georgian Jewellery that is steeped in English history.

Very beautiful ornate detail and lovely Georgian workmanship
