Description: Gold necklace pendant inlaid with a garnet. The pendant is composed of a thin squared back-plate with rounded corners whose contours are closely followed by a frame of heavy beaded wire. This surrounds a square collet made from a strip of gold whose ends overlap beneath/below the suspension loop. The cell holds a square-cut plate garnet whose surface is slightly damaged. The garnet appears to be set over decayed silver foil. The ribbed suspension loop is poorly cut to a point to the back where it is soldered to the back plate. The front of the loop is displaced from its o…

Medieval gold pendant. A rectangular gold pendant with a suspension loop at the top and projecting pins at three of the corners. The fourth pin has been pushed inside the pendant. One side is crudely engraved with the head of Christ and the other with a half-length image of Christ as the Man of Sorrows. The pins are likely to have been designed to hold pearls, which have perished in the ground. Metal analysis conducted at the British Museum established the gold content to be 83% gold. Dimensions: 10mm x 12mm

Gold pendant. A discoid plate of beaten gold sheet with a separate wire rim, and with the upstanding sheet metal wall of a central circular cell, now empty, of internal diameter 11.5mm.

The outer wire rim [of diameter 0.9mm] has parted from the sheet plate at one point, where its under-surface appears indented or billeted, and a similar appearance is also visible elsewhere when the two elements are distinguishable by…

TREASURE CASE : 2016 T327. An incomplete early medieval gold pendant. The pendant is made from a crescent-shaped sheet of gold comprising a central, elongated plate flanked by birds' heads. The birds' long beaks curve sharply around to join the lower edge of the plate under their heads, creating an open-work circle on each side. The beaks are joined at the bottom by a narrow strip of gold, now dislodged from one terminal and bent, which creates a sub-triangular open-work void in the centre of the pendant. The front of the pendant is decorated with applied filigree and granulation. The…

Incomplete gold pendant, comprising two joining fragments, an item of personal dress. Round-shouldered or 'kite-shaped' shield, bent (and probably folded and then unfolded), with three vertical creases and broken along two probable horizontal creases. There is a small perforated lug in the same plane at the apex. The pointed lower end of the shield is missing, approximately just over half survives. Traces of the damaged repoussé decoration on the face show the head of a king. The vertical creases correspond in part with the sides of the crown, which has a central fleur-de-lis and tra…

Sheet gold element, the sheet joined to form a cylindrical hollow form with projecting lobes, separated by engraved grooves, then twisted. A suspension loop added at one end; the remains of a similar loop at the other. The surface has been carefully tooled and worked and may show keying for enamelled decoration, now missing. The object is made from very high carat gold but is very hard to interpret. The large rather crude loop is unusual for a piece of jewellery but the object was clearly designed to be hung and if there was a second loop at the other end it might have formed a cha…

A circa 2nd to 3rd century AD gold pendant, ovoid, set with a blue-grey glass paste intaglio, very worn, pitted and devitrified. The setting has a central rib and all that remains of the attachment is a single gold filigree loop. The intaglio depicts a robed seated figure facing right, holding a sceptre in his right hand and an uncertain object in the left. The figure may represent Jupiter but is too worn to be certain. A parallel for the intaglio can be found in Henig 2007, no. 10. References Henig, M., 2007. A Corpus of Roman Engraved Gemstones from British Sites: With a New P…
