Reason for treatment
Readhere broken fragment
The object is in good condition overall. There is a garnet missing from the upper area of the pendant. There is a missing piece of silver from the side of the pendant that exposes the gold foil underneath the garnet. The suspension loop has broken away from the pendant.
The suspension loop was reattached to the pendant using HMG heatproof and waterproof adhesive (cellulose nitrate). The join was supported using a small piece of nylon gossomer.
