Gold and garnet pendant, length with loop 1.65cm. Oval cabochon garnet in plain sheet gold collar, with plain backplate projecting slightly to form rim, and rim decorated with 3 beaded wires. Loop made of strip of corrugated gold, flat inside, middle corrugation wider than flanking pair, soldered on; rolled on top, with end soldered up into loop, back end squared off and soldered onto back. Beading of rim disturbed by it: outer wire carried across inside loop, inner diverted by it: suggests loop put before beading. Similar technique to M 6619. Loop shows no sign of wear, but outermost beading worn smooth in places.Lab results: AuAgCuBack72244Beading67258Loop68284
