In the early 1900s, when this piece was made, the question mark was popular motif, as nobody knew what the new century would hold. The shape of the question mark was employed in the silhouette of the “Gibson Girl” -- Charles Gibson's famous (sexy for the time) illustrations of the ideal 20th century American woman. The body of this pendant is rendered in gold and punctuated with a ruby and demantoid garnet.
