Description

DATE: Art Deco, c.1920

Simple and stylish diamond solitaire pendant dating from the Art Deco period, circa 1920. The principal stone is a .67ct fancy light yellow transitional cut (spreads a full carat), wonderfully proportioned with low big table of a modern brilliant, and the large pavilion facets and open culet of an old Euro (scroll down for the long read on the transitional cut...). It's mounted 14k gold scalloped claw mount with diamond-set triangular bail.

The transitional cut is something of a cult classic; a hybrid cut that sits somewhere between the old European cut (which came into popularity in the 19th Century) and the modern brilliant cut that's near ubiquitous today. They were experimental stones, produced between the 1920s and 1940s, and literally bridging the gap between old and modern cuts, so a great deal of variety can be found from stone to stone. They typically feature bigger tables, lower crowns, and smaller open culets than the old Euros that preceded them, meaning they have more of the brilliance and sparkle associated with modern stones, whilst keeping that unique/imperfect old cut charm.
