Antique Diamond and Black Enamel Cross Pendant
ABOUT THIS NECKLACE
Arrayed over this divine antique cross pendant, hand fabricated in rich 18K yellow gold, ten chunky old mine-cut diamonds (total weight, 2.30 carats) sparkle, shine and scintillate from within as many buttercup settings, each accentuated with black enamel tracery. The striking jewel suspends from a cable chain by way of a matching heart-shaped bail. Although unmarked, it is very likely of French origin. A rare and ravishing antique jewel, circa 1880. It measures 2 and 1/8 inches long.
