An extraordinarily rare find, this original Victorian era pendant is completely unique and utterly elegant! Expertly crafted in the 1800’s, the pin features a glittering cluster of rose cut diamonds set at the center of a lustrous pool of royal blue enamel! This gorgeous display is framed by a twist of buttery 18k yellow gold. This pin/pendant is full of old world charm and absolutely one of a kind. A gorgeous and rare work of art that carries with it all the pathos of the Victorian era, this pin is imbued with history and longevity, a beautiful and enduring artifact of the past. The 9 diamonds total 0.90ct and have a striking impact! Exceptionally rare, old rose cut diamonds have larger diameters for their weights, so they have a much larger impact than their carat weight implies! Graded G-K for color, the diamonds show very minimal warmth and work together well as a set. They stand out brightly against the blue enamel. For clarity the diamonds are graded VS-SI. The inclusions blend very nicely and do not jump to the eye. A few of the rose cut diamonds have some external abrasions, products of their antique cut and century long journey. Overall, these are gorgeous stones, and the facets catch the light beautifully! A couple of the diamonds have been replaced with rounds, the rest are original to the piece. The diamonds are hand cut, making each one charmingly unique. The pendant is made from 18k yellow gold topped. The pendant measures 36.9mm from top to bottom and 20mm across. Handmade with great care during the Victorian era, this pendant has soaked in more than a century’s worth of life. Whether you are buying for yourself or as a gift, this pendant brings with it not only elegant beauty but also meaning and longevity. A rare find like this does not come around often! Once it is sold we certainly will not be able to replace it.
