Gorgeous antique round pendant covered with diamonds with delicate floral and curly motifs. A diamonds flower holds in its center a natural red ruby showcased by genuine diamonds in motion. Sensation of coolness emanates from this piece of jewelry : in the background, a stylized spider web is covered with diamonds and gives the effect of a morning dew and drops of water.
We see one old mine brilliant cut diamond with an estimated weight of .10 Carats and 57 rose cut diamonds. We do not have the weight of the diamonds which is normal in our trade when it comes to rose cuts. From our expert, this pendant was made around 1870s with silver on top and backed with 18 high Carat rose gold. This is a typical Victorian jewelry.
Although it carries a typical French control mark representing an owl, we cannot be sure it is actually French as the owl was also used for items in finished condition that were brought to be examined by the French Assay office (the eagle’s head was used for items brought in unfinished).
The diameter measures 27.5 mm (1.08 inch) and weighs 8.90 grams. From our expertise, the antique condition is excellent which means we cannot see any trace of wear even when looking very close.
Delivered with its authenticity certificate.
