The diamonds in this necklace are like fabulous specimens, chunky and uniquely cut with big fat culets. The bottom diamond is almost square with a high crown and amazing table, still connected to it's tiny companion as it was in the 19th c. The top diamond is a chunky round beauty from the same group, and together they wink and sparkle as only old diamonds can. The chain is new and Platinum. The diamonds in their original settings date to the mid 1800's. Re-cycle, re-purpose, re-love. Obsess.
Lumiére for the way the light plays on and in these lovely old diamonds. With this group of jewels we concentrated on what the original configurations communicated to us. We kept the diamonds in their original silver and gold settings and used recycled 14k white gold, 18k yellow gold, and platinum to make them into rings, earrings, and pendants.
Details.....The pendant drops 15.8mm from the chain. The bottom diamond measures 5mm x 4.8mm. The platinum chain is 18" long. Please expect to see some wear and quirks with this collection, we consider it part of the design.
