Pendant by Carlo Giuliano and Susan Durant, 1877

This pendant was created by leading London jeweller Carlo Giuliano (1831–1895).

The pendant was a gift from Queen Victoria to one of her godchildren, Victoria Alexandrina Elizabeth Grey, on the occasion of her marriage in June 1877. Grey was the daughter of Charles Grey, Prince Albert’s, and later Queen Victoria’s, private secretary. Susan Durant modelled the profile of Queen Victoria used in this pendant for a medallion in 1864-6.
