Antique Victorian 14K Yellow Gold .50CT Diamond Natural Pearl Pin or Pendant
Dating to the late 1800s may I offer this gem from the Victorian era! Again, not the usual Starburst or Sunburst pin but this time, one that is filled with all the love of the giver. Hearts adorn this pendant or pin - the top of each loving symbol set with 3 natural seed pearls. And at the center, a stunning faceted round diamond that sparkles brilliantly. At the back, there is a bale that moves up and down; the pin is lodged within an old fashioned safety catch. The pin - pendant was probably a gift from a gentleman to his lady - I think the sentiment is quite apparent and would have told the lady of the gentleman's intent - matrimony! Condition is excellent with no problems I can spot.
Metal Content: 14K Gold with a Hallmark of 14K on the catch.
Size: 1-1/8" x 1-1/8"
Diamond: The center diamond measures 5mm (50 points or 1/2 CARAT). Color is G-H and clarity is VS1 (it's a very nice clear, clean, sparkly diamond). Pearls number 18 and measure 2mm each.
Weight: 5.9 grams
Final Comments: Beautiful! Size of the Diamond is INDEED everything! Leave as is or take the diamond out and put into a ring and then put another stone or pearl in the pin. Either way - I believe this piece represents a great value for the new owner! Oh, and the chain shown is for display purposes only - just think of the fun you will have in choosing the perfect chain with your beloved!
