Diamond & Tourmaline Pendant Necklace c. 1920
Scintillating elegance and bold color has this circa 1920 brooch pendant necklace transitioning from the Edwardian era to decadent Art Deco design. The world of pendants can revolve around this substantial cushion cut green tourmaline of an approximate 8.5 carats as centerpiece.
Glorious verdant green is the foil against which thirty-two (32) diamonds – a mix of twenty-nine (29) old European and three (3) rose cut diamonds – with a total estimated diamond weight of 1.35 carats, I-K color range and VS2-SI1 clarity hold their own with plenty of fire and shine to light up the universe.
The hinged bale adds versatility to the platinum-topped 14k yellow gold piece with dual roles as brooch and pendant with a later date 14k white gold chain. A diamond-capped pear shaped cultured pearl (about 9 mm by 6 mm by 6 mm) provides balance with calculated symmetry of form and articulated design. The reverse displays double pin fittings and a safety clasp for security.
Date: Circa 1920.
Measurements: Pendant is 2 inches (5.08 cm) in length including bale and 1-3/4 inches (4.5 cm) without by 1-9/16 inches (4.1 cm) in length. Chain when worn is 18 inches (45.7 cm) in length. Weight of 11.8 grams (7.6 dwt) for pendant and chain.
Condition: Excellent; chain later date; second pin has been added later; chain has sterling clasp which can easily be replaced.
Note: Stones were not removed to preserve the integrity of the setting. All weights are approximated by measurement and formula and may vary from actual weights. Grading may vary if stones are removed.
