It is truly a work of art, a testament to the mastery of its Edwardian era artisan. The pendant is made from 18k yellow gold topped with platinum.
This approach was common at the time and creates a beautiful, bright background for the diamonds. The pendant has a pin back and can be detached from the chain to wear as a brooch. The chain is 18k white gold. The necklace is 18.5 inches long, and the pendant measures 35.2mm across and 26.3mm from the top of the pendant to the bottom of the dangle.
