This is a wonderful old pendant made by fine maker, Jabel. They have been in business here in the US and known for their fine quality work since 1916....
** Please note that this diamond is extremely white, clean and fiery! Any dark areas in my photos are just reflections of my camera! **
The pendant is crafted of solid 18K white gold and features a lovely old European cut diamond that is approximately 4.87 mm in diameter, so is estimated to be approximately .50 carat. It has a lovely fiery old cut with an open culet and is a very fine quality stone, as is expected with Jabel pieces. I would judge the color to be in the G-H range of near-colorless and the diamond is completely eye-clean of inclusions, as well as being super clean under my loupe. The only thing to mention condition-wise is that it is chipped at the girdle, though it has mostly been hidden by one of the double prongs. It's seen only with magnification and you can see it in my macro photo #3. It's not something easily seen without close examination under magnification, but mentioned for accuracy. Otherwise the stone is in lovely condition.
The setting is very pretty....it's an open backed illusion style setting that both allows a lot of light in to the diamond as well as making it look even larger. It measures approximately 7 mm in diameter and the diamond is held in place by four sets of decorative double prongs...it almost gives the setting a bit of a flower look, while still being very elegant and classic. The bail is decorative as well, and adds approximately 6 mm to the length of the drop. The back of the bail is marked for both 18K gold and "Jabel." The prongs are still strong and sturdy and in good vintage condition.
The pendant is suspended on a very sturdy solid 14K vintage white gold curb chain that is approximately 18 inches in length. The color of the white gold is a bit warmer than that of the pendant, but you could consider having it rhodiumed if you wanted a whiter finish to it. It's a good quality chain that closes securely with a spring ring clasp. The clasp is marked for 14K gold and with the maker "Speidel." The total weight of the pendant with chain is 3.30 grams.
Perfect as a special gift to yourself or someone you love....this is a classicly elegant piece, by a fine maker, that will always be in style!
Please convo with questions and Thanks for looking! Happy Holidays!
