Victorian 14kt. Diamond & Cultured Pearl Pin Pendent

This circa 1900 14kt yellow gold pin/pendent is in outstanding condition. The 9 cultured pearls appear to be all original & are a soft light cream in color. The 9 diamonds are of graduated sizes for design purposes. They are of different cuts (some are replacements) and total 1ct. in weight. They each have been prong mounted into a buttercup solitaire mount. The bottom points of the crescent & the center of the 8 gold buds between the pearls have hand engraved accents. The pin & locking clasp appear to be original. The pin stick has a minor slight wave. The bail appears to be original & is non rotating-a chain just feeds thru it. There are no gold marks as can be true to the period. All parts have been acid tested for gold content. The interior rim of the crescent has a light hand engraved 1/16" long set of initials (I'm sure an ID mark for a previous owner)-see photo #7. Six of the eight backsides of the gold buds have minuscule (smaller then 1/64") pin holes (see photo #6) original to manufacture for ? purpose. The piece is 2" wide x 1 5/8" tall x 3/8" deep. When you take into account the pin, clasp & bail the piece is almost 5/8" deep. A beautiful piece for that woman who loves true Victorian jewelry-the crescent was a popular motif.
