Stunning Victorian Pavé Diamond Heart Pendant

Stunning Victorian Pavé Diamond Heart Pendant

$9,400.00


Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1870

A superb antique heart pendant, pavé set with bright old cut diamonds and with the original diamond-set bail. The piece remains with its original fitted heart-shaped presentation box - a wonder in itself. The term "pavé" translates from French as "paved" or "cobbled", and literally describes the way that the stones cover the entire front of the piece.

The reverse features a rock crystal cabochon locket compartment, which can be opened (by a jeweller) in order to place a photograph or other memento behind. A stunning, eye-catching piece - it doesn't get much better than this.
