This pendent has a lovely feminine look with out being overly fussy. The base of the pendent has overlapping loops accented with rows of single cuts, six small collar mounted european cut diamonds and a 9mm (3/8") pearl all combined to represent a flower. In the middle is a link that contains two curved rows of single cuts and another collar mounted european. At the top is a leaf designed bale that contains another four european cut diamonds.
The platinum mountings are in excellent condition with no rips, cracks, dents, holes, nasty scratches, abrasions or repairs. The movement between the three mountings is in smooth working order. The diamonds are all there and none stand out as obvious replacements. They have nice equal color and brightness and weight a total of 1.25 ct. The pearl is a light silver in tone and is firm in it's mounting. I can't tell if it is spiked but it's backside is sitting on a curved bar and shows evidence of being adhered by glue. The glue is old as it has that aged gold tone. The chain is a 16 inch 14kt. period reproduction that we put on the pendent. This form of replacement should never bother you as chains are often lost or broken.
We have searched this pendent numerous times and can not find a platinum mark. It was evidently on the original chain. Rich has acid tested and will guarantee a minimum of 850 platinum. From the top of the bale to the base the pendent measures 1 11/16" x 3/4" at widest point x 3/8" at deepest point. A lovely vintage pendent in super condition.
