Story

Luminescent tiers create a three-dimensional assemblage of diamonds, pearls and 15k yellow gold. Later 19th century examples of pendants such as the one displayed here had become somewhat smaller in size with pearls and diamonds in the place of the more colorful stones of the previous decades.

An old European cut diamond of about .20 points set in a wide crimped collet is situated at the apex of a golden gem-encrusted "crown". Attended by a surround of eight (8) lush natural pearl courtiers averaging 3.3 mm set closed back and eight (8) ladies-in waiting of open back old mine cut accent diamonds about .01 points each are all set in delicate crimped collets of gold. The total estimated diamond weight is .28 points.

The outer ring of heralds, guards and champions of the court consists of twenty-one (21) creamy white natural pearls averaging 2.8 mm each and again mounted closed back with finely detailed crimped collets upon a base of intricate pierced openwork of 15k yellow gold.

The brooch pendant is finished with a removable pendant bale set with three (3) natural pearls graduated in size from 2 mm to 3.5 mm and with a detachable brooch fitting (using a tiny screw).
