Caroline's Jewelry with a Past is offering 14kt. yellow gold pendant/ brooch combination in the shape of a lover's heart. The pendant/brooch is encrusted with 138 prong set pearls and the central feature is a prong set 5.5 mm round Dutch rose cut diamond. The stone is flawed, but has a bright sparkly look and good color. It is included and has two small chips under the prongs. Because the diamond is rose cut, the weight of the diamond has not been calculated. The bale swivels and folds down to be worn as a brooch. The pendant/brooch is 1" X 1" , has an indecipherable maker's mark and is in excellent condition.
This piece does not include a chain.
