Story

Possessing a surface alive with texture, light and subtle chiaroscuro, this star-themed antique jewel takes us to another place and time.

Rich and glorious, it can be worn as a pendant or a brooch and looks as chic and in vogue as it did over 130 years ago. The juxtaposition of the gold bead work (or granulation) is a visual delight against the cool silver and diamonds.

Demantoid garnets from Russia, mined long ago in the Ural Mountains, provide their yellow grass-green touches of color. At the center, a luminous blue moonstone wavers with an aurora borealis of otherworldly icy light.

From the moonstone, an eight-pointed star radiates outward, completely encrusted with old European, cushion and old mine cut diamonds set in silver.

Most find it is in the detail, painstaking craftsmanship and superb aesthetic design where antique jewelry outshines their modern counterparts...and this example illustrates those points to perfection.

Summary:
Fifty six antique diamonds, total weight of 3.36 carats, color H-I, clarity range SI1-I1 (with one small diamond at a cape color).

Nine round and oval faceted natural demantoid garnets total of .77 carats.
Setting is silver and 14k yellow gold.
Tube hinge, and safety clasp.
