A spectacular diamond wishbone pendant necklace from the Victorian (ca1880) era! Likely French in origin, this stunning piece, which was originally worn as a pin, is crafted in silver-topped 18kt yellow gold. The pendant forms a 3-dimensional wishbone shape, which is adorned with a sparkling diamond encrusted surface totaling approximately 0.85ctw. The diamonds are a combination of Mine Cut and Rose Cut stones, which line the wishbone in a pavé setting. A modern 14kt white gold chain connects on either side of the wishbone, creating an absolutely stunning necklace. The chain clasp is stamped "14KT" and there is a small marking on the side of the wishbone; please see images.
