Superb Diamond Studded Acorn Pendant

Gem Set Love

The workmanship of this wonderful late 19th Century acorn pendant is superb. The acorn's cap and leaves are crafted of platinum over 18k yellow gold, then studded with glittering rose cut diamonds. A lustrous natural pearl forms the nut, with a wee old mine cut diamond set at the top of the pendant. The diamonds have a total weight of 0.25cts. Truly special, this piece is disarmingly delightful from every angle. This pendant is a conversion jewel, re-purposed from a vintage stick pin into a pendant with a jump ring added for versatility. It hangs on a modern 14k gold cable chain finished with a secure lobster clasp. Circa 1890.

From a tiny acorn grows the magnificent oak. It is no wonder that the acorn has long been a symbol of growth, potential, abundance, and prosperity. Acorns play important roles in the folklore and mythology of many different cultures, a fascinating subject to research should your interest be piqued.

Details.....The chain is 16" long. The pendant measures 21mm by 12.3mm. In Very Good Antique Condition. You should always expect some wear on your vintage and antique jewels, we consider it part of their charm.
