Silver-Topped Gold and Diamond Pendant Brooch
This extraordinary French silver-topped gold pendant brooch, from the era of Napoleon III, is designed with scrolling floral motifs suspending articulated double festoons, all set with over twelve carats of old mine-cut diamonds that drop and dangle. Against the dark patina of the silver-topped gold, the intense sparkle and white light reflection of the diamonds, and their flexible hanging pendant, is all the more dazzling. Wear this exceptional ornament period-style on a velvet ribbon as a pendant, or pin it to the collar of a button down shirt for a chic antique-to-modern look.
