Antique Victorian Nut Pendant | KS Monogram
The pendant has an unidentified nut set in a simple bezel gold frame with an applied gold piece featuring two male figures facing each other. The two male figures may be doing the “honi” or "hongi", a traditional Polynesian greeting where two people greet each other by pressing noses/foreheads and inhaling at the same time. The greeting represents the exchange of the breath of life, and the spiritual power between two people. The sentimental Victorians would also have appreciated the symbolism of this exchange. The two figures could also be the zodiac symbol for Gemini. The other side of the pendant has the applied gold letters KS. The piece was found with the clear coating already applied to it; possibly to protect the nut/gold from scratching or from coming apart; this is not removeable.
Weight: 13.2 grams
Measurements: 1.5775 inches long total and 1.2305 inches wide
Marks: unmarked, acid tested as 10K on the bail part, I did not test the gold on the frame or nut so as not to damage the nut or coating.
