DESCRIPTION:
This is a magnificent heirloom pendant in its original condition and with over three carats faceted rose cut diamonds. It symbolizes high quality of craftsmanship and premium materials.

Made out of 800/°° Silver and 750/°° (18K) solid gold*, it is stamped twice for both materials.

The pendant features a diamond studded tassel design which retains a moving free-form pear-shaped faceted rose cut diamond which sways gently with a slight motion. The pear-shaped gem is also flunked by rose-cut diamonds. The tear drop design is suspended with three other diamonds two of which are prong set.

All the diamonds are faceted rose cut and gypsy set. They are all foil backed which allows the light to be reflected outward, enhancing its qualities. The two top diamond, however, are half cut and prong set.

The many gems add up to over 3cts of exceptional brilliance. There are 10 roses measuring approximately 3.5mm each, 2 roses at approximately 2mm each, one tear shape of about 7mm x 5mm supported by 4 roses coming in at ~1mm. Another rose is set on the stem of the tassel before giving way to the last two prong set diamonds which form the bail. Those two measure approximately 6.5mm and 1.5mm respectively. All the diamonds are in very good condition except for the large prong set one which may have been added at a different period and which shows two large chips on the girdle and one inclusion. All of the gems have an exceptional sparkling ability which is unusual for late 18th century rose-cut diamonds.

This is a stunning piece of antique jewelry in very good antique condition showing expected but less than normal wear. Any white or cloudy spots on the images are glare and/or photographic obstructions. Please, note that the chain in one of the photo is for display only.

The earrings are beautiful and were very well photographed so I had a clear idea of what I was ordering. I would have liked a photo of the earrings on a mannequin or model so that I could have understood their size a little better.
