18k Rose Gold and Silver. This masterfully crafted antique diamond and turquoise necklace dates back to the turn of the 20th century and evokes the airily romantic aesthetic of Art Nouveau design. Shimmering with extremely rare antique rose cut diamonds, the pendants graceful lines curve and swirl like rippling water in a stream. At the center of the pendant, a dazzling and exceptionally clean Old Mine cut diamond (H VS1) sparkles in a ribbon of sky blue turquoise. Made by hand over 100 years ago, this utterly unique necklace is a strikingly beautiful work of artistry, a wearable artifact of a past era.The 0.55ct Old Mine cut diamond center is exceptionally clean, graded VS1 for clarity. 100% eye clean, even with the aid of a 10x magnified jewelers loupe, it is very difficult to find any inclusions. Graded H for color, the diamond faces up beautifully white.
As an Old Mine cut, it is full of old world charm with brightly sparkling, wide hand cut facets. The rose cut accent diamonds have color grades ranging from F-I.The diamonds all match beautifully, appearing white facing up. The accent diamonds are all eye clean with the majority graded VS. All of the diamonds are hand cut, making each one charmingly unique.
This is an extremely rare piece. The stone is believed to be natural turquoise, originally either hand cut or applied in powdered form. It is also a possibility that it could be enamel work but after examining the features, we feel that it is indeed Turquoise.
The pendant is made from 18k rose gold topped with silver. This approach was common at the time and creates a beautiful, bright background for the diamonds.
The pendant has a pin back so that it can be worn as a brooch. The chain is made of 10k white gold (acid tested). The necklace is 19.5 inches long, and the pendant measures 29.5mm in diameter. Romantic, historied, and gorgeously designed, this antique necklace is a work of art!
