Antique 18th Century Georgian Table Cut Diamond Pendant Earrings Silver Gold

$6,298.24

About

Pair of Georgian Diamond Pendant Earrings in Silver and Gold, Portugal, Late 18th/Early 19th Century, fitted in Period Case. Each of the antique earrings from the late 1700s/early 1800s is designed with openwork foliate and drop motifs and collet-set throughout with table-cut and single-cut diamonds. The earrings are secured on the ear with a lever-back gold fitting. Diamonds approximately 1.30 carats in total. Dimensions: 7.5cm (length). Gross weight: 12.4g (total for the pair). Tested as silver and gold, not marked. The table cut dates back to the late 1400s, when cutters began fashioning existing point cut diamonds into a new style, by rubbing them on a board treated with diamond dust and olive oil. This resulted in a square polished facet that resembled a tabletop. The new cut greatly improved the amount of light returned to the viewer, giving table-cut diamonds more brilliance and fire than ever before, which led them to dominate diamond jewelry through the 1500s and 1600s. This item is in good condition, with marks and scratches consistent with general age and wear. Antique, period and vintage pieces, both signed and unsigned, are being offered as worn. Unless otherwise stated, all weights and quality factors have been graded as mounting permitted and using classic gemology. Assessments related to period of manufacture are expert opinions and may differ from the assessments provided by other professionals. Colors in the pictures/videos might slightly differ from the colors in real life. For additional information or clarification, please get in touch and we will be happy to help.
