Description

A very fine late 19th Century Diamond Necklace / Brooch / Hair Ornament in High Carat (18 Carat Tested) Yellow Gold and Silver (925).

The central feature of the design is a Diamond set Classical Fan Shaped Spray, this in turn is flanked by two symmetrical Diamond set Demi-Scroll Spray designs which are then suspended from a detachable Trace Necklace of alternating Graduating Linear and "Navette" shaped Diamond set links, complete with a matching sprung tongue Diamond set clasp.

This beautiful Necklace is centrally set with a single Old European Cut Diamond which has been assessed as being of 1.17 Carats, H Colour and SI1 Clarity. There are a further 281 Old Cut and Rose Cut Diamonds throughout, some of substantial size, these have also been independently assessed as being of 15.50 Carats, G - J Colour and VS2 - SI2 Clarity; the total Diamond weight of this stunning Necklace has been assessed as being of 16.67 Carats overall.

The central section is detachable, so that it may be worn as a substantial Diamond Brooch and this piece also has a receipt for the fitting of a hair comb attachment (so that it may be worn as an elegant Hair Ornament) , the detachable Brooch fitting is concealed within its lined Collingwood case (assumed to be the original case).

This beautiful Necklace also has the potential to be easily converted to fit a bespoke Tiara frame (this alteration can easily be achieved, should our purchaser request this adjustment).

This extraordinary Diamond Necklace is also accompanied by an Independent Gemmologists Report confirming the above assessment.

A rare opportunity for someone to acquire and thereby add to their collection an extremely versatile and equally beautiful piece of Classic Antique Diamond Jewellery.
