Late Victorian 2.34ct Diamond Shell Pendant

Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1890

This magical diamond shell pendant dates to the late Victorian era, c.1890. The stones are old single cuts, and likely pre-date the piece by a hundred years or more. The delicacy of the piece is exquisite, with a total of 2.34 carats of diamonds set in 15k gold, and complete with original stone set bail. The old single cut is a modification of the table cut, with the corners replaced with further facets. Rare and unusual, they look fabulous in this setting.
