Edwardian Sterling/14kt Diamond Horseshoe Pendant Necklace 1.25ctw
A gorgeous diamond horseshoe necklace from the Edwardian (ca1910) era! Crafted in 14kt yellow gold and topped in sterling silver, this mixed metals piece is comprised of a diamond-encrusted horseshoe pendant that hangs from a modern link chain. The pendant was originally a pin, and has since been converted for modern day wear. Lining the front surface are 15 graduating old Mine Cut diamonds, weighing approximately 1.25ctw combined. The prong set stones catch the light brilliantly with every turn and the darkened sterling allows the brightness of the stones to come alive. The prong setting and delicate cutouts at the base provide a subtle scalloped edge that adds a lovely feminine touch to the elegant design. A modern 18kt white gold chain is attached to either tip of the pendant, and fastens in the back with a spring ring clasp, stamped with a "750" gold purity mark. It's a stunning turn-of-the-century piece, perfect for the equestrian enthusiast and would look gorgeous worn everyday!
Measurements: The chain measures approximately 15" long. The pendant hangs about 7/8" long, a little more than 3/4" wide and is slightly more than 1/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold and sterling 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.
