Antique Platinum Diamond Pendant

Antique Chinese platinum pendant necklace set with a 0.5ct VS/I fancy octagon cut diamond, on a platinum chain necklace.

From the turn of the last century, both items bear hallmarks in Chinese. Platinum pieces are rare in Straits Chinese jewellery. While much of mourning jewellery was created in silver, platinum was for luxury and usually reveal exquisite craftsmanship.

This pendant was inspired by Victorian Giardinetti pendants, the flower basket motif can be seen in many Peranakan pieces. These outcomes are always quintessentially Peranakan, with granulation work typical of Straits Chinese craftsmanship. The platinum make of this Giardinetti pendant is reminiscent of Edwardian jewellery.
In this pendant, the thin bridges of platinum create delicate bow or scroll work. At the side and underside you can see how finely solid these bridges are.
The ’round’ and ‘baguette’ carvings mimic the shine of diamonds, but it is the octagon diamond that has a true dewy effect. The use of drop diamonds is also a Victorian influence.
The platinum chain necklace is hand fabricated, the whole length of it.
Era-authentic platinum jewellery is very cinematic, a key influence in how we understand ‘chinoiserie’ in style today.
