Depicting an incredible Deco design, the pin/pendant has very intricate and fine details, and is accented with soft milgrained accents and shapely cutouts. The entire surface is encrusted in sparkling old Mine Cut diamonds which are bead set within the symmetrical pattern and in the center is a gorgeous 0.75ct Marquise Cut diamond (with H color, and VS clarity) framed at the top and bottom by vibrant calibrated emeralds. Four nice sized Baguette Cut diamonds and and two additional rows of emeralds are set at the sides of the large center stone, creating a dynamic look.

On the back is a secure pin clasp as well as a safety hook for the removable bail. The artistic work in this piece is quite exemplary and the design is simply breathtaking! A truly exquisite piece, it would make a wonderful gift and is perfect for wearing on special occasions!
