This wonderful diamond cross is impressive in size, weight and beauty. Filled with sparkling foil backed rose and single cut diamonds it just glitters anywhere near the sun. It is pierced all through the mount. The top bail is reticulated so it has a nice little movement when being worn on a chain or ribbon. This absolutely would have been worn on a ribbon during its period.
The center diamond being the largest measures 5mm x 5mm across. It is safely collet set. All of the other 32 diamonds are collet set as well. The mount is lovely and is silver topped and gold backed. The gold is testing for at least 12K yellow.
This is a large cross and measures 2 1/2" x 1 1/2" across. and weighs 7.45 grams.
This was purchased in Italy and is produced is Venetian. I have had the privilege of handling a great deal of Italian jewelry and I am sure of it's origin.
The piece is in excellent condition with no apologies to be made. It does have warm pating which could gently be hand polished if the new owner chooses.
It is in excellent antique condition with no apologies to be made. One of the nicest old Georgian crosses I have had the pleasure of owning. Questions are always welcome and encouraged.
