Antique Georgian Conversion Solitaire Diamond Pendant | Antique Rose Cut Diamond Pendant
The pendant features a decorative silver prong style frame with a rub over collet bezel set rose cut diamond in the center. It has a white gold V-bail. The diamond in this pendant is perfectly imperfect given the technology of the time period it was set into this piece.
The Georgian period ( 1714 to 1837) covered the reigns of five English kings, four named George and one William. The reigns of George I, II, III, IV, and William IV.
This pendant came from an authenticated Georgian Era Rose Cut Diamond Necklace. I wanted the necklace to be worn more often and since it was already a marriage piece of different Georgian components I had my jeweler take it apart lovingly to create new everyday pieces. Some of the pieces are now part of my collection and some I have listed to share with you.
The diamond on this piece once had a foiled closed setting but it has now been removed and the back opened up to allow light to shine through the stone and allow it to be worn with less worry. Foiled stones have to be worn with care not to immerse them in water or risk damaging the delicate foil. The pendant has been cleaned and polished by my jeweler during the conversion. If you like patina don't worry because over time the silver will take on the darkened tone giving the pendant back some of its real age.
Measurements: 0.8040 inches long and 0.5025 inches wide. The diamond is approximately 7.67 mm.
Weight: 2.7 grams
Markings: The component setting is acid tested as silver. The bail added by my jeweler is 14k white gold. The stone is tested as a diamond.
****PLEASE NOTE: The listing is for the one Georgian Pendant described above only. The necklace and other two pendants are not included. The other two Georgian pendants are listed separately.*****
