About

18ct gold and silver set Victorian, Diamond and Emerald Pendant or Brooch circa 1860 Floral and scroll motif design in 18ct yellow gold with emerald tips to the flowers with an articulated pear shaped diamond drop of approx 1.0ct. Very well matched Emeralds with large central stone. Three main transitional cut (old mine) diamonds of approx 0.25ct each (0.75cts in total). Mix of old mine and rose cut diamonds in an 18 carat yellow gold with “silver Set” channel setting , approx 3.0ct total. Total diamond weight: approx 4.75 ct, G/H/I, VS2-SI2. Setting diamonds in gold with a thin layer of silver, “silver set”, was a technique used in the Georgian/Victorian/Art Nouveau period as white coloured gold and platinum were not yet available. A very thin layer of silver was applied to the gold, on which the diamonds were set, to show them off to their best advantage (as the yellow would reflect and distort the white colour of the diamonds). In fitted period box, by Hunt and Roskell, Jewellers to Her Majesty Queen Victoria. Detachable 18ct brooch and pendant fittings. Dimensions: Pendant Height 65mm (including pear shape opal drop) Width 42mm (at widest) Chain length 44cm (16”)
