 A very informative site.  Antique jewellery university.

 in the absence of detailed hallmarks the style of faceting in the gems gives a historical hint, your grannies diamond lacks the dazzle of todays gems because the cutters developed a new pattern of facets to reflect more light through the top surface , same gem but more bang for your bucks!.

I have seen a piece of very similar pattern from Rajasthan,a very heavy necklet with same design elements.
 Is it of steel or silver?
The hinge and locking pin suggest an anklet. Could this be a Romani heirloom ?

 Can anyone tell me what sort of records might exist that would perhaps yield more information of the Thomas Larkham mentioned below : or where any such might be held.

According to the Gloucestershire Prison Records  Thomas LARKHAM
aged 20 of St Augustines was released from prison (having been acquitted) on
5 April 1825. He had been charged (jointly with George COLE aged 18 of St
Augustines) “with having feloniously stolen taken and carried away one
linen pinafore the property of Charles Vaughan Esq." The record includes this
description of him:
“Dark brown hair dark grey eyes brown complexion long face wide mouth long
nose several moles on his right arm scars on the back of left hand two small
moles left side his neck Blacksmith Height 5  5 1/4.”
 Im looking for the parents of a fellow of this name and wonder if any such detail may be found in records relative to the case.
