Type of jewel: necklace
Condition: very good
Country of origin: Most probably Belgium
Era: ca. 1960 - The gold chain is from the sixties of the 20th century, but the silver center piece and the smaller silver diamond settings are older.
Material: 18K yellow gold and silver (touchstone tested)
Technique: The diamonds are set in silver. In older era's (antique jewellery) it was common for diamonds to be set in silver as it was believed that a white metal can bring out a diamond's lustre much better.
-22 old mine brilliant cut diamonds (also called bolshevics), with an estimated weight of ± 1.50ct. This diamond cut was common around 1800, these diamonds most probably come from antique jewellery from that time. (colour and clarity: H/K, i). All diamond weights, color grades and clarity are approximate since the stones were not removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting.
-One rose cut diamond. We do not have the weight of this diamond which is normal in our trade when it comes to rose cuts.
-One emerald with an estimated weight of ± 12ct.
-Six emeralds with an estimated total weight of ± 6ct.
The weight of stones are approximate since the stones were not removed from their mounts, this to preserve the integrity of the setting.
For the same reason we haven't tested the identity of these stones. Their inclusion patterns resemble that of emerald. Furthermore, the surface reaching fractures seem to be filled with a substance, which is common for emerald as this makes their usual included apprearance more transparent and sometimes of better colour. Besides that, we've got indication of a green foil at the bottom of the setting of these stones to make them appear of a better colour. This means that the green colour that these stones seem to have, isn't the genuine colour of the stones, which makes us doubtful of their identity as emeralds.
Birth and month stones: Diamond is the birthstone (or month stone) for April and emerald for May.
Hallmarks: No trace.
