This is a beautiful vintage buttercup diamond pendant of 14 Kt gold - not marked, but tested as 14 karat. The buttercup style was introduced around 1977 and quickly became very popular. I am not a gemologist, but I would estimate the color at G/H and clarity about SI 1 or SI 2. I looked at the diamond under a jeweler's loupe and saw no obvious inclusions and definitely no carbon spots. It is a clear and sparkly 15 to 18 points (.15 to .18 carat). It could be a bit more, but I prefer to err on the lower side. The pendant is 1/2 inch from bail to bottom and approximately 5/16-inch wide.

The 16-inch 14 KYG chain is included.

The pendant is at least 24 years old and may be closer to 30, so there are signs of normal wear that you would expect of a vintage piece. I believe you can see in the photos; you have to look closely, but it's there.

The six prongs appear under the loupe to be sturdy - you may be able to tell from the larger photo that one prong leans ever so slightly. I haven't polished the mounting because many buyers want the patina that comes with age on a vintage piece. Your neighborhood jeweler should be happy to polish it a bit for you.
