Victorian 3.48 Carat Old Cut Diamond Pear Drop Pendant, circa 1890
Dramatically beautiful. The bright and clean old pear cut diamond drops within an immaculately striking surround, with thirty-seven round old cut stones are in cut-back settings. The whiteness and quality of the diamonds contrasts arrestingly with the blackened silver. A simple rose gold hoop tops the pendant.
