Edwardian 14kt/Platinum Moonstone & Diamond Circle Pin/Pendant
A beautiful moonstone pin/pendant from the Edwardian (ca1910) era! This lovely piece is crafted in platinum-topped 14kt gold, and has a simple, yet stylish open circle design. Lining the surface of the piece are 8 moonstone cabochons, which alternate with sections of fine pavé diamonds. The moonstones rest in open back bezel settings, allowing light to pass through their polished surface. Each stone is translucent and pale blue in color, emitting an iridescent flash that creates an alluring, mysterious appearance. The delicate accent diamonds add a soft sparkle, the perfect compliment to the moonstones! On the back of the piece is a secure bar pin and clasp (marked "14"), and a hidden swinging bail, allowing the piece to be worn in two equally lovely ways. Whether hung from a chain as a pendant, or fastened to a favorite garment as a brooch, this versatile piece would make a wonderful addition to any antique collection!
Measurements: The circular design measures 1" in diameter, and is 3/16" thick when measured from the side.
Condition: The overall condition of the pin/pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the platinum and gold setting. The pin clasp and swinging bail are both secure and in good working condition. All of the moonstone cabochons and accent diamonds are intact and securely set. If desired, the piece could be converted by removing the pin clasp or swinging bail, making it strictly a pendant or pin.
