Vintage .88 Carat European Diamond Drop
ABOUT THIS NECKLACE
A beautiful bright-white and shining European-cut diamond, weighing .88 carats, beams brilliantly from within a plain white gold bezel-setting suspended from an 18 inch 14k white gold chain. Simply sparkling! The beauty of antique and vintage diamonds, compared to their modern counterparts, are the individual characteristics which distinguishes each and every stone. Rather than strictly adhering to cookie-cutter formulas, the diamond cutters of yesteryear viewed each rough diamond as an ancient Greek or Roman sculptor viewed a rough piece of marble and proceeded to fashion it according to the dictates of nature and his own artistic impulses to create the most beautiful and valuable stone possible.
