Old European Cut Diamond Pendant, Antique Peranakan Jewellery

Coin small and with each point pushing an old European cut diamond, this 20-22k old cut beauty is of Peranakan origin. The diamonds are transparent and fiery bright – they do not shy even when photographed in dim light.

All diamonds in this pendant are old European cut diamonds, with the exception of the center diamond, which is a transitional cut. While this is a dainty pendant in terms of size (under 1 inch), the similarly sized diamonds at each point are set very close together, yet not a true cluster, which gives the pendant a larger than life appearance. The overall roundedness of this design gives off an old glamour. 8 close-knitted diamonds border the larger center drop diamond (about .25ct), with this ‘bao’ held by a similarly sized .25ct diamond drop at the top.

The swinging drop frivolity is of course inspired by the many lavalier designs in the Victorian and French jewelry then, where time after time we have seen to truly influence Peranakan jewelry art. With a two-part swing and at an approximate total weight of 1.35ct, the sentiment is of packed droplets frozen in glassy time.
