Luxury Design, Past & Present
An Edwardian conch pearl, emerald and diamond pendant with later embellishments, the pear-shaped conch peal, measuring approximately 11.0 x 7.1mm, suspended by a diamond-set run between two calibre-cut emerald-set openwork scrolls, beneath a later diamond-set festoon leading to a small conch pearl drop, measuring approximately 7.0 x 4.2mm, all surmounted from a diamond-set bow, the diamonds estimated to weigh a total of 0.7 carats, set to platinum mount and suspended from a fixed trace chain, circa 1910, measuring approximately 6x2.5cm, gross weight 7.97 grams.
An exquisitely detailed and colourful pendant necklace. The pendant features a diamond-set bow attaching it to the necklace chain. Suspended from the bow is a scrolled motif of platinum set with verdant green calibre cut emeralds. In the centre of the scroll motif is a wonderful conch pearl in a beautiful shade of pale pink. Hanging from the scroll are two lines of sparkling diamonds, which meet in the centre with a further conch pearl drop. The pink of the pearl and green of the emeralds complement each other wonderfully, and the diamonds add eye-catching sparkle to this piece. This necklace comes from the collection of Bentley & Skinner, the London jewellers by appointment to both Her Majesty the Queen and His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales and would look gorgeous with an evening gown.
This antique pendant is in very good condition for its age, with later embellishments. Unmarked, tested as platinum and 18ct gold.
