many moons ago, 17 years or so my sister gave me celtic cross pendent. look similar to this

http://independent.4giftsdirect.com/...4_IrishCel.jpg

Awhile back she asked if she could have it back, so i gave it to her. planning i would never see it again.

well ups dropped off a package today, that was the pendent.

i guess my sister had taken it to have it looked at,
it seems it was made in 1795 by a silver smith in london.

wow, and here i used to wear that all the time

only thing i know, is a english girl that my sister went to college with( my sister is about 10 years older then me) gave it to her, there last of college.

i saw it years later, and i liked it, so my sister said i could use it if i wanted. (err, not have, just use )

that is all i know. oh, i have the name of the company that made it. of course that is at home, not on me

That is so cool! I love old things like that. I have a ring that my Oma passed down to me that was made in the early 1800's in Latvia which is where she is from. I love the ring, it's a big Amber stone in a simple setting on a gold band, but I can't bring myself to wear it. If I lost it I would never forgive myself. I wore it once out for Chirstmas and the entire night I was constantly checking to make sure it was still there!

I am glad to hear that you are still planning on wearing and enjoying your pendant! Things like that are meant to be enjoyed not stuffed away in a box like my ring!

Nice!

I would suggest getting it appraised not only based on it's value as jewellery, but also as an antique. Then get a rider for your insurance policy for it's replacement value, not that it can be physically replaced.

You might also check with a museum in your area. Perhaps you could loan it out for a period of time for one of their displays.
