This stunning pin/pendant from the early 1900's is such an incredible piece of jewelry.
The fabulous white-on-white look--dazzling white diamonds combined with lustrous pearls on a platinum-topped 14K gold backdrop--is, in a word, unbeatable.
It's also a really versatile piece that can be worn as a pin or a pendant, depending on the occasion.
The centre 0.25 ct diamond has six smaller diamonds and six whole pearls rotating around it. The pearls appear to be natural and measure 2.25 mms a piece. The diamonds, older-cut stones, are approx. .07 cts each.
The snowflake design is set in an open scalloped frame, embellished with a further six 1.75 mm diamonds and six 3-mm pearls. Total diamond carat weight is about 0.80 carats.
Pendant measures 24 mm and weighs a good 6.2 grams. The clasp is a locking "C" type pin (pre-dating the spring ring), and there is a folding bail at the top back.
Excellent condition. No problems, no damage at all. Back is stamped "14K" underlined with a crescent moon. The top acid-tests as platinum. Chain is not included.
* One of the pearls was loose so I removed it (please see photo #4), but it has been professionally re-mounted.
