EDWARDIAN FRENCH PLATINUM CARVED RUBY OLD CUT DIAMOND 3.20CT CLIP BROOCH PENDANT
This is a stunning Edwardian / Art Deco brooch set in Platinum, hallmarked with the dogs head for French origin. I would be amazed if this wasn't a designer piece, those lovely carved Rubies are always a give away but I cannot find any marks for Cartier etc
Set in the brooch are 4 natural large pear shape old cut diamonds, with further old cut diamonds.
The largest diamonds measures; just under 1.00ct, 0.60ct, 0.50ct, 0.30ct and further small old cut diamonds 0.01-0.03ct.
These lovely old cut pear shaped diamonds have superb colour and clarity estimated at Vs2-Si2 and colour G-M, the largest botton teardrop is purposefully a slight tinted colour, while the whitest almost has a faint pink tinge.
Natural carved Rubies measure; 7 x 5mm and 5.5 x 3.5mm
Total diamond content approx 3.20ct
The Clip/ brooch measures approx 18 x 28mm across
The clip weighs 8.3g
The clip is in superb working condition, with minimal signs commensurate of age. This can be worn as a pendant with a chain fed through as the clip closes firmly with no gap, so this would be totally secure
A superb investment opportunity
