Story

Believed to have originated from the Maltese cross form, the Botonée Cross was used typically in heraldry. Although it bears similarity to the religious Greek cross, the Trefoil or Treflée cruciform is characterized by a trefoil or triple scallops at the end of each arm.

The open work 18k white and yellow gold design features an array of one (1) old European and twenty-three (23) rose cut diamonds with an estimated total weight of .30 carats. The rose cuts are particularly charming with their naïve cut. Radiating from the central diamond, the open work arms have lozenge mounts set with diamonds with each arm terminating with a trefoil of diamonds in round settings.

Date: Circa 1910.
