Welcome to Robins Nest Midwest!
First off, this item is subject to prior sale so please contact me before putting it into your basket so that I can make sure it is still available. Second, I don’t know if layaway is available on this item or not so again, you have to contact me to get an answer. Where’s it from? Well, one of my best sources of jewelry who has given me carte blanche to photo what I want to offer to my customers. So, up for offer now……..
AGE: C.1980/1990 or so
ITEM: Of high carat gold and stunning in its appearance, here's a jewelry set that is going to set tongues a-wagging! Composed of a pair of earrings, a pendant AND a ring, the focal point to each piece is the lavender jade (okay, lavender agate stone) at the center. Surrounded by carved black onyx, 2 of the pieces also feature diamonds! So, let me go into the particulars on each item......
THE RING: Measures a size 9-3/4" on my ring sizer. Weight is 16 grams. There is some beautiful filigree work under the design and the dimensions of the design on top measures 1" east/west on a straight line x 1" north/south. Width of the shank at the back is just under 1/4" (4.8mm).
The lavender cab at the center measures 17mm x 14mm (11/16" x 1/2"). On either side are two scalloped black onyx "ribbed" decorative pieces. Above the jade cab and below are 5 round faceted diamonds (total of 10) measuring 2mm (2 points each) for a total weight of .20CT TW. Off to the sides (above and below) are 6 princess cut (possibly asscher cut) faceted diamonds (total of 12) measuring 1.75mm x 1.75mm (3 points each) for a total weight of .36CT TW. Diamonds are graded VS1 with G-H Color.
THE EARRINGS: Each earring measures 1-3/16" x 1". Weight of EACH earring is 17.3 grams - total weight is 34.6 grams.
The lavender cab at the center measures 23mm x 18mm (1" x 3/4"). Surrounding the stone are curved panels of black onyx. The earrings are for pierced ears and are posts with omega backs.
THE PENDANT: The pendant measures 1-13/16" high (from top of bale to bottom) x 1-1/16" wide. Weight of the pendant is 17.4 grams.
The lavender cab at the center measures 23mm x 18mm (1" x 3/4"). Surrounding the stone are, again, curved panels of black onyx s well as 4 diamonds set in white gold (all the better to make them look LARGER! The diamonds measure 2mm (2 points each) for a total weight of .08CT TW. Diamonds are graded VS1 with G-H Color.
The bale at the top of the piece has an open latch back so that the pendant can be placed on a strand of pearls, beads OR a chain.
-------NOTE: All weights/measurements are approximate and are made to the best of my ability!
CONDITION: All the pieces are in excellent condition with no problems I can spot.
METAL CONTENT: 18K Gold
HALLMARKS: AJF 18K 750 The hallmarks definitely indicate a European manufacture. In checking my reference books, I could find no mention of an artisan with the initials AJF.
FINAL COMMENTS: Retail of all 3 pieces? I'd say anywhere from $4,500 on up - and that's being conservative. To purchase today? Maybe the same - maybe more! The set offered now is a great value at the price I have set. If purchased, it is sure to please one lucky lady!
