Edwardian Platinum Topped 18kt Rose Cut Diamond Cross Pendant
A very lovely cross pendant from the Edwardian (ca1910s) era! This wonderful piece is crafted of 18kt yellow gold topped in platinum and forms the shape of an ornate cross. The body of the cross adorns twelve sparkling old Rose Cut diamonds and a larger old Mine Cut stone is bezel set in the middle where the arms intersect. A fine open channel framed by milgraining lines the entire border, perfectly completing the design. A complementary platinum-topped bail rests at the top, making it easy to attach to the wearer's favorite chain. This pendant would be a very special gift and make a wonderful addition to any Edwardian jewelry collection!
Measurement: The cross hangs approximately 1 1/2" long, including the bail. It is nearly 7/8" wide and has a depth of approximately 2mm.
Condition: The overall condition of this piece is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the platinum-topped gold setting and the bail is secure and in good working condition. There is no apparent damage to any of the diamonds which are all intact and securely set.
