Vintage Coral Pendant
ABOUT THIS NECKLACE
It is said that each of the suits in a deck of cards represented the four major pillars of the economy in the Middle Ages: Hearts represented the Church, Spades represented the military, Clubs represented agriculture, and Diamonds represented the merchant class (thank you Wikipedia). Here we have an enduring symbol of agriculture composed of three salmon-colored corals and a glittering rose-cut diamond. This cool antique pendant (circa late-19th century) was originally a stick pin.16-inch chain.
