I THIS PRODUCT ADD TO WISHLIST
A delightfully pretty pendant centering on a pear-shaped cabochon of white opal with good play of colour ranging from vivid reds and oranges through to hints of green and violet. The opal is set in a platinum mount and suspended within a garland frame of amethyst flowers and diamond leaves, set in gold and platinum respectively.
The pendant is surmounted by a charming platinum and diamond bow in true Belle Epoque style with a diamond set pendant bail (loop). The gemstones are millegrain set throughout.
There are 64 rose cut diamonds throughout this charming piece with an estimated total weight of 1.30 carats, and 42 old cut amethysts with a total weight of 1.20 carats. The opal measures 2.5cm x 1.7cm and weighs approximately 8 carats.
The pendant measures 5cm in length and is 3cm wide. It weighs 10.45g.
The Belle Epoque was considered the golden age of Europe, noted for its peace and prosperity. This was reflected in the grace, beauty and romance of design in this period.
An elegant pair of early Edwardian drop earrings in silver and paste, these pretty earrings have a bow design. Set in silver with paste glass to imitate old cut diamonds with collet set mounts, these sparkly earrings are perfect for an evening out.
A diamond line bracelet set with 59 graduated round brilliant cut diamonds with a total approximate weight of 3.80 carats. The diamonds have G-H colour and VS-SI (very slightly to slightly included) clarity.
In this unusual and very elegant ring, a central old mine cut diamond is set on the diagonal and surrounded by calibré-cut rubies. The shank is bifurcated and scrolls up to meet the pierced gallery of the head of the ring.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the beautiful necklace ShinyPrettyThings obtained for Ellie. She was so thrilled with it and I just know it will be precious to her always. The colour is so vivid and she was so thrilled to open it.
Over the past year or so ShinyPrettyThings has carefully assembled a beautiful collection of Jewellery pieces for me. Predominately rings and necklaces, each piece has been carefully chosen with my personal taste in mind. I like delicate details and period design, Georgian, early Victorian and a little Art Deco…this is just what ShinyPrettyThings has found for me. I love my new ruby and diamond pearl drop earrings that were so cleverly sourced to tie in with my other pieces. ShinyPrettyThings brings wonderful customer service and immense knowledge and attention to detail to each commission.
