Victorian 14kt/Sterling Diamond Double Horseshoe + Nail Pendant Necklace 2.00ctw
An absolutely stunning diamond horseshoe pendant necklace from the early Victorian (ca1850s) era! Originally worn as a pin, this incredible piece has since been converted into a bold pendant that hangs from a beautiful Victorian era watch chain. Crafted in sterling topped 14kt yellow gold, the pendant forms the shape of two horseshoes that are "pierced" by an equestrian nail. The horseshoes rest on a slight angle, which allows the square-tip nail to have the appearance of piercing through the open centers, providing a wonderful 3-dimensional appeal to the design. Sparkling old Mine and Rose Cut diamonds line the entire front surface, collectively weighing approximately 2.00ctw, beautifully catching the light with every turn. The brightness of the micro prong-set stones comes alive against the darkened patina of the silver setting and attached to either side of the pendant is a vibrant interlocking yellow gold chain, which fastens in the back with a spring ring clasp. Blending perfectly into modern day fashion, this diamond horseshoe necklace makes a fabulous statement when worn!
Measurements: The necklace measures approximately 16.5" in total length. The horseshoe pendant measures about 2" wide, 5/8" tall, and is 1/4" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver and yellow gold setting or chain and all of the diamonds are intact and securely set. The clasp fastens securely and is in good working condition.
