Antique Edwardian diamond and natural pearl necklace in gold and silver
1 in stock
Here’s a feminine diamond and natural pearl pendant from the Edwardian period.
Colourless stones were in fashion in the early years of the 20th century. Pearls and diamonds were the most valuable of these, and thus the most prized – at the time pearls cost about four times as much as diamonds of the equivalent weight.
This pretty pendant is made from 15-carat yellow gold with a silver top setting. The drop features 31 old mine cut diamonds millegrain set.
Forty-four rose-cut diamonds decorate the top bow and connecting pieces. The use of rose-cut diamonds was common for small, accent diamonds at the time.
At some stage this pendant was clumsily converted to a brooch. I removed the brooch addition and restored it to its original form, adding the vintage 18-carat white gold chain.
The diamond bow at the top – a popular Edwardian motif – is a lovely detail.
