Victorian Diamond Set Heart & Crown Pendant
The motif of a heart surmounted by a crown dates back to the 16th century when Mary Stuart, commonly known as Mary, Queen of Scots was the queen regnant of Scotland. Adored by her people, the heart is symbolic of love and the crown signifies loyalty and fidelity. The design has continued to be employed through the centuries.
Here in the form of a petite yet very shimmering pendant is that uncompromising symbol rendered in silver-topped 14k yellow gold and set with thirty-five (35) old mine and old single cut diamonds with a total estimated weight of .82 carats (J-L color range). Carefully detailed, the pendant is an example of lovely open work, symmetry, balance and harmony of design.
Date: Circa 1880.
Measurements: 1-3/16 of an inch (3.0 cm) in length from top of the "O" fitting to bottom by 3/4 of an inch (1.9 cm) in width. Weight of 2.5 grams (1.6 dwt).
Condition: Excellent; a few diamonds with scratches only visible with magnification; later top “O” fitting.
Origin: Most likely English.
Note: Diamonds were not removed to preserve the integrity of the setting. Weights are approximated by measurement and formula and may vary from actual weights.
