Rare and unique antique Diamond cross from the Victorian period
Large sized and unique workmanship here is one perfect gift for some one who wants to remark with something of unique to wear and keeping for eternity
An highly collectable Diamond cross dating back to 1890 Ca
All superbly hand crated of precious Victorian craftsmanship of solid 14Kt solid gold with solid silver as used during the Victorian period for housing Diamonds
It is stamped on the bail and also tested for guarantee
Along the beautiful design it also displays a selection of rose cut Diamonds slightly graduated in size to fit arms and design
It contains 15 rose cut in number for a total estimate of at least one full carat : 1.00 CT of antique rose cut Diamonds full of glistening sparkle and fine quality!
Centering one old mine cut Diamond of .12 Ct set onto a bezel
diamonds do have some inclusions however antique jewellery is rare and considering wars and shortage of material made quite natural at the time to get something with diamonds as unique not for quality grade but for valuating a diamond as rare earth mined GEM with the fatigue of men working in the mines to get some rare material
When you buy antiques you also get part of the history of GEMS and also Historical happenings in Europe and in the world
I feel quite funny when someone asks for grading rose cut Diamonds especially when melee forgetting of the history and emotion an antique jewel gives
This rare antique cross contains 1.12 Ct of Diamonds
it measures 48 mm. x 27 mm.
Very good condition commensurate to age
A treasure to get hold of!
Current retail value is £ 2,450 our reserve is much less and the cross a must have!!!!
