Early Victorian 12kt Rose Cut Diamond Crown + Flower Tremblé Pin
A breathtaking and highly unique tremblé pin from the Early Victorian (ca1850s) era! This magnificent piece is crafted in rosy 12kt yellow gold and features a bold crown and a floral motif. A handcrafted open wirework crown is attached at the base of the piece and accented by 9 glinting old Rose Cut diamonds. A coiled spring housed within an open frame beneath the crown supports the blooming flower tremblé in its 3-dimensional design, allowing the piece to "tremble" with light, fluttery movement when worn. Twelve sparkling old Rose Cut diamonds detail each flower petal and a large Rose Cut diamond resting in a dramatic belcher setting lifts at the flower's center, its sparkle further enhanced by the trembling coil as it catches the light. The foil-backed diamonds weigh an approximate total weight of 1.75ctw and the one-of-a-kind pin secures with a hinged pin and c-catch clasp at the back. An extraordinary Early Victorian piece, it would make a spectacular addition to any collection!
Measurements: The pin measures an overall 1 5/16" tall, crown and flower included. The crown measures about 1" wide and 3/4" tall. The flower measures about 7/8" in diameter and is about 5/16" deep. At rest, the flower sits approximately 7/8" from its gold base, not including the c-catch clasp.
Condition: The pin remains in overall excellent antique condition. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting, and all of the diamonds are intact. The hinged pin and c-clasp are both secure and in good working condition. Due to the hand-cut nature of old Rose Cut diamonds, the stones do not have perfect symmetry. This reflects the age and genuine appearance of the diamonds. There is a natural patina on the surface of the gold, which is a normal characteristic of antique jewelry.
