Early Victorian 14kt & Diamond Double Heart Necklace
An absolutely stunning diamond necklace from the early Victorian (ca1850) era! Originally an antique pin, this piece has since been converted into a gorgeous pendant that hangs from a 14kt white gold chain. The pendant is made of sterling-topped 14kt yellow gold and depicts two romantic intertwined hearts, which are encrusted with diamonds. Resting on top of both hearts is a regal diamond crown, completing the lovely design. There are a total of 36 sparkling old Mine Cut diamonds that decorate the hearts, base of the crown, and each of its five points. The 14kt chain connects to the outer points of the crown and fastens in the back with a simple spring ring clasp, and is stamped "14k" along with a makers mark. A very delicate and feminine piece, this early Victorian piece looks lovely when worn and would make a special addition to any collection!
Measurements: The necklace measures approximately 14.5" long. The pendant measures 3/4" wide and tall, and is 1/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. There is no apparent damage to the silver-topped gold setting, and all of the diamonds are intact. The spring ring clasp is secure and in good working condition.
