Ask a question

There are so many antique diamond star pendants for sale! How to choose?

Like snowflakes, all are subtly different. This pretty example has space introduced by the central elements being separate – they’re invisibly attached from underneath.

It retains its easily screwed in brooch fitting, so it can be worn as both brooch and pendant.

And it is quite deeply angled away from the base, providing interesting depth.

The nearly two carats of old mine cut, old round cut and rose cut diamonds are good quality too … but I hope that goes without saying for those of you who know my jewellery.
