J.E. CALDWELL Edwardian Platinum & Diamond Horseshoe Necklace 2.00ctw
A gorgeous diamond horseshoe necklace by J.E. Caldwell from the Edwardian (ca1910) era! Made of platinum, the piece is comprised of a diamond-encrusted horseshoe pendant that hangs from a delicate platinum link chain. Lining the front of the horseshoe are 33 sparkling old European cut diamonds, which rest in a graduated pavé setting and have a total approximate carat weight of 2.00ctw. A filigree pattern of cutout open circles is visible from the side, and a series of small hallmarks can be found on the back. Included among them are "J2G10" and "J.E. C. & CO." The fine platinum link chain compliments the pendant perfectly and fastens with a secure spring ring clasp in the back. Accompanying the necklace is an appraisal issued by an independent and accredited GIA certified Graduate Gemologist in July 2012, which has a stated retail replacement value of $8,500.00. A stunning turn-of-the-century piece, it is perfect for the equestrian enthusiast and would look gorgeous worn everyday or on special occasions!
Measurements: The chain measures 24.5" long. The diamond horseshoe pendant hangs 1 3/8" long, is 1 1/4" wide and approximately 3/16" thick. The overall pennyweight of the piece is 7.3 dwt.
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the platinum setting or to any of the diamonds, all of which are intact. The chain and spring ring clasp are both secure and in good working condition.
