Edwardian Diamond Turquoise Heart Pendant or Brooch

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A gift of a lifetime, this exquisite diamond and turquoise antique jewel was made as a pendant and a brooch. Behind the pendant is a pin that ingeniously unscrews so that the heart lays flat at the neck. A photo, untouched, cannot show you the excitement of the shining diamonds or the warmth of the natural turquoise, a combination of gems that is striking and complimentary. Two hearts, an outer of diamonds accented with turquoise and more diamonds, a heart shaped relief and an inner smaller heart of turquoise centered by the generous glow of a single diamond gem. The precious metals are gold of 15 kt and silver. Jewelers topped the gold settings with silver so that there would be no gold interference with the color of the stones. This was a recognized technique in the Georgian and Victorian eras. Our heart was made in the turn of the 20th century and it is doubly perfect. English Origin
