Description

MARKED DOWN FROM $6850! The stomacher, a jewel worn at the breast area which trails downward to the center of a gown, dressed the front of many a formal gown in the 18th century.

In paintings from the 1700s you frequently see long stomachers which ended at or even below the waist. Graduated in proportion, these ornaments could be totally constructed of silver set with diamonds to the use of more modest gems such as the garnets, pearls or turquoise in this example. The piece was often rendered in a bow form or stylized in the impression of a bow.

At times fashion's influence provided for the flat front area of the dress (bodice) to be less ornate to accommodate for the “devant de corsage”. In fact, another definition of a stomacher is a V-shaped cloth panel inset into the front opening of a gown.

This articulated three element treasure is made of 14k yellow gold open work set with twenty-nine (29) turquoise cabochon ranging from 3 to 5 mm in diameter. The bow form features a natural pearl 7.5 mm diameter collet set with a scalloped bezel.

An additional thirteen (13) natural fresh and saltwater pearls in collet settings embellish the scrolling gold of the pendant. Now this can be worn on a wide ribbon at the next by threading through the fittings at the back.

Provenance: Purchased by the owner of The Three Graces for her personal collection in 2001 from a private dealer.

Date: Circa 1760 - 1780.

Measurements: Length of 3 3/8 inches (8.8 mm) by 2 7/8 inches (7.5 mm) hat the widest. Weight of 24.2 grams.

Condition: Excellent for its age; faint traces of silver solder from former fittings to a few areas on top edges; one connecting link a later addition; current ribbon fittings are a later addition; some pearls show evidence of glue if viewed with magnification; one turquoise with a stable hairline crack.

Origin: Most likely European.
