About

Edwardian pave rose diamond lorgnette completely covered in stones and set in platinum.
Pulling down the central floret station in the middle of the handle releases the lenses with a spring. The frames surrounding the lenses and bridge are also completely paved in tiny rose diamonds. Basket and flower motifs mixed with a stylized fleur de lis motif popular in the Edwardian period.
Exceptional quality. Circa 1900's.
