Edwardian 18kt/Platinum Diamond Sliver Crescent Pendant Necklace 3.50ctw
A stunning diamond crescent conversion necklace from the Edwardian (ca1910) era! This relatively large piece is comprised of a sparkling sliver crescent pendant crafted in 18kt yellow gold topped with platinum that hangs from a modern chain. Adorning the surface of the crescent is a graduating row of old Mine Cut diamonds, which collectively have a total approximate weight of 3.50ctw. The prong set stones exhibit H-I range color and VS range clarity, with facets that catch the light brilliantly with every turn. The top edge features a smoothly polished finish, while the bottom edge is open, allowing the prong set diamonds to create a subtle scalloped edge. The pendant hangs from a modern chain in an east to west direction, which creates a unique and stylish look when worn. The 14kt white gold interlocking link chain has two clasps and an extension, allowing the necklace to be worn at two different lengths. The clasps are stamped with "585" and "14K" gold purity marks, and the extension chain provides wonderful versatility. A magnificent statement piece for any celestial enthusiast, it would make a positively radiant addition to any collection!
Measurements: The necklace measures 16.25" long at the shorter length, and 19.5" longer with the extension chain. The pendant itself measures approximately 3 1/8" wide and is a little more than 1/8" tall (at the center) and thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the yellow gold and platinum pendant or white gold chain. All of the diamonds are intact and securely set. The clasps are secure and in good working condition.
