This gorgeous petite diamond pendant was crafted sometime during the Art Deco design period (1920-1940). The diamond pendant is 14k white gold over 14K gold and features one sparkling Old European cut diamond. The pendant portion of the necklace was originally an antique stick pin. Stick pins were tiny brooches used for a variety of purposes during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. They could serve as a type of tie pin or hat pin, they held decorative scarves in place, and adorned lapels. They were very personal and come in endless motifs and varieties; from gemstones to portraits, decorative knots, flowers, and many types of animals. During this time period geometrical motifs with almost architectural design elements were popular. The pendant features clean lines and timeless engravings . This antique necklace features approximately 0.10 carats of diamonds; combined total weight. The chain is a brand new 14k gold cable style with easy to use lobster claw style clasp closure. Timeless everyday antique styles such as these are often our bestsellers as they are easy to integrate into any jewelry collection, complimentary to any style, and always an appropriate gift. The chain on this necklace measures approximately 16 inches in length. The pendant measures approximately 5/8ths of an inch in length.
