Diamond Pendant / Brooch, Circa 1940s

$3,280

About

Ornate, exuberant goldsmithing showcases about 1.20 carats of 42 glittering antique rose-cut diamonds and approximately .85 carats of Old European cut stones in this magnificent, baroque-revival pendant /brooch from around 1940. The total diamond weight is estimated to be just over 2 carats. The buttery and sturdy 14K yellow gold has been intricately worked by a master goldsmith to create an ornate central pierced foliate design surrounded by an outwardly-curved tri-scalloped brim that has been etched and beaded by hand and set with the 42 stones. Entirely crafted by hand, the reverse side of the brooch / pendant reveals just how finely crafted this piece truly is. The components -an oval bail that folds out of the way when the piece is in use as a brooch and the original stick pin- are beautifully, and carefully executed and this exceptional quality is the reason why this piece is perfectly wearable today. I love how the .50 carat diamond and the .15 sparkler above it both swing freely from the body of the piece. The jewel measures 28 x 28mm. The diamonds are white and eye-clean. There is no maker's mark that I could find. It is marked for 14K. Unisex, unique and brilliant.
