Platinum Diamond Moonstone Heart and Bow Pendant Necklace
Do you remember that poem, the one about the owl and the pussycat who fall in love and run off to get married? It’s an unlikely pair, an owl and cat, but as they say, love is blind. At the end of the poem they walk hand in hand through the sand and dance by the light of the moon (‘the moon, the moon, and they danced by the light of the moon’). This pendant makes me want to dance by the light of the moon, or the moonstone as it were.
Hand crafted in the Garland era in about 1910, this wonderful necklace features a scrolling ribbon and bow top and moonstone and diamond drop on a chain of platinum. The pendant is 15k backed and platinum topped and set with a heart shaped cabochon moonstone which measures 10.5x9.2x5.6 mm and weighs about 2.24 carats. The heart is set into a halo of 35 rose cut diamonds, there are 3 more diamonds on the bow and another 34 on the ribbon for 72 1-2 mm rose cuts in all. This necklace is unmarked but has been acid tested as 15 karat gold and platinum, the chain is 17.5 inches long and the drop is 35 mm long and 35 mm across at the top.
A necklace of which Edward Lear would approve, I’m sure.
