Trinket Tuesday: Pendant Eggs

The Hillwood Mansion and Museum has in its collection these lovely pendant eggs necklace and earrings.

Egg Necklace

The necklace has thirty-two pendant eggs and was made in St. Petersburg circa 1900.  The chain is made of gold and the eggs are of various materials, such as enamel, onyx, diamonds, rubies, malachite, carnelian and amethysts.

Egg Earrings

The earrings were made in Russia between 1914 and 1917. They are made of gold, silver enamel and sapphire. So lovely!

Trinket Tuesday is where I share some of the lovely things I discover during my travels, research or around town. All pictures are my own (unless I state otherwise). I hope you enjoy!
