9K & Silver Victorian Diamond & Garnet Flower Crescent Pendant
A rare example of an early Victorian c.1830-1840 crescent, set with double row foiled table cut & rose cut diamonds and a garnet. It is crafted in 9k gold and silver.
It is an absolute stunning example of transitional late Georgian to early Victorian periods, where we can see little elements of both periods in this piece. The settings and table cut, and closed back features of this piece are very much Georgian, yet the pierced side gallery profile of this piece would be the start of many crescent features we see throughout the Victorian era.
There is a certain old world charm about this crescent that makes it so alluring. The crescents measures a large 38mm across, and is unpolished to retain its natural aged patina. It was a brooch, and we have converted it beautifully into a wearable pendant.
There are approx. 3.75ct of diamonds by spread, and 0.30ct of garnet, with a total weight of 4.05ctw. It weighs 11.93 grams.
Note: As the diamonds are foiled, it is advisable that the piece does not get wet or exposed to water. It can be gently cleaned by wiping it down with a wrung out damp cloth.
