Retro 14kt White Gold + Sapphire Etched Starburst Heart Pendant 1.55ctw
This gemstone heart pendant from the Retro era (ca1940s) is a lovely and romantic piece! Crafted in solid 14kt white gold, the heart has a simple and stylish design with an eye-catching surface. A total of 17 sapphires are set across the front, totaling approximately 1.55ctw. Each stone is set individually at the center of an etched starburst border. The sapphires vary in size, giving that the illusion that the smaller stars are further in the distance, while the largest stones appear close, mimicking a celestial night sky. All of the stones are faceted, delivering a soft sparkle as they catch the light, and accentuating their range of medium to deep blue colors. Attached to the top is a simple ring bail, where the pendant can be hung from a favorite chain. Stamped on the back of the piece is a "14K" gold purity mark near the base. A very sentimental piece, this Retro heart pendant merges effortlessly into modern fashion, and would make a perfect everyday accessory!

Condition: The overall condition of the pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the white gold setting. All of the sapphires are intact and securely set, and the ring bail at the top is securely attached.
