19th Century Silver Topped Gold Moonstone Diamond Heart Pendant
A sentimental 19th Century diamond and moonstone heart pendant set in silver topped gold. The large luminous heart shaped moonstone is surrounded by old mine cut diamonds. There are 35 diamonds weighing a total of approximately 2.65 cts of diamonds. Originally the item was a pin, but the pinstem is now removed and a later diamond bail was added. This makes it very easy now to suspend from a chain or even a cord or ribbon. The bow topping the heart is Victorian motif that speaks to the sentiment of the period. The pendant is a little over 1 inch top to bottom and 3/4 inch wide.
