Engraved Star Old Mine Diamond Shield Pendant, Victorian Conversion 9ct 9k Gold.Add to Wishlist
Old mine cut diamond pendant. I adore this antique piece. Just simply adore it. It originally started it's life as a stick pin. We've cut off the pin and bent the top to create a small bail. This piece is deeply and incredibly hand engraved with a five pointed star, or five petalled flower, to the front. Set in the centre is the brightest, most wonderful, wonkiest old mine cut diamond. The diamond has a wonderful steep crown and a large open culet. This entire design is within a heavy gold shield shape design. It's hallow to the inside while maintaining a wonderful weight.
On the back is a personal inscription, "From R.S.W. To T.A.K. April 16, 1878".
