A superb example of Edwardian jewelry. A circa 1910 brooch, approximately 1-3/8 inches by 5/8 inches, featuring a 0.50ct central diamond of Old European cut, flanked by two Old European cut diamonds of approximately 0.30ct each, accented by a profusion of smaller diamonds, totaling almost 1.60ct in all, sparkling in a 14kt white gold setting with millegrain edges. A gorgeous, authentic, Edwardian gem that looks like it came straight out of Downton Abbey, and a timeless jewel for today and tomorrow.
The total weight of this superbly-crafted pin is 4.2 grams. It features a total of 57 diamonds, including 15 Old European cut brilliants, and 42 single cut diamonds. The central diamond, with estimated G-H color and SI1 clarity, weighs an estimated 0.50ct. It is flanked by 2 diamonds of similar color, one with clarity estimated at VS2, the other SI1, weighing approximately 0.30ct each, and a further 12, smaller, Old European cut diamonds with a total weight of 0.34ct. The 42 smaller diamonds are single cut with very good color. All weights and grading are estimated, as permitted by the mounting. The total estimated weight of diamonds in the brooch is 1.59ct. The mounting is 14kt white gold, acid-tested. The clasp is 14kt yellow gold, tested, and appears to be a replacement part that has been expertly added. The brooch measures approximately 1-3/8 inches x 5/8 inch. The brooch is in excellent vintage condition.
This spectacular brooch will arrive in a fine presentation box.
