Edwardian Platinum Diamond Dangling Crown Pendant Necklace 3.48ctw
An absolutely breathtaking necklace from the Edwardian (ca1910s) era! This elegant piece is crafted in platinum and stars an elegant and majestic design. The dramatic pendant centerpiece forms the shape of a regal crown, featuring fine milgraining, open cutouts, and sparkling old cut diamonds throughout. Lining the center of the headdress are five bezel set old European Cut diamonds which dangle freely within open circular windows. The five substantially-sized diamonds have a total approximate weight of 1.30ctw, beautifully catching the light with every turn. An array of old Mine and Rose Cut diamonds add gentle sparkle to the base of the pendant, twinkling against the platinum setting, and trails of diamonds hang from the bottom, creating a dramatic draped appeal with fantastic movement. Finishing the diamond-lined tassels are three teardrop links adorned with two stones each and a single diamond studded circular link at the center. Collectively, the piece has an overall approximate weight of 3.48ctw, exhibiting G-I range color and VS2-I1 range clarity. The pendant attaches to a delicate platinum chain at either side and thanks to an attached chain extension, the necklace can be worn at a 16" or 18" length. This stunning necklace would be an incredible addition to any Edwardian collection.
Measurements: The necklace measures 16" long and has a 2" extension, allowing it to be worn at 18". The pendant is about 1 1/8" at its widest and hangs 2.5" at its longest dangle.
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the platinum setting or cutout details. The chain, the chain extension, and the two box clasps and latches are secure. All of the diamonds are intact and securely set.
