General Information:

  • Total Stone Weight: Professionally estimated by formula to be approximately 2.002 ctw; 1.04 center and 0.962 ctw mixed cut side stones (breakdown below)
  • Precious Metal Material: Platinum
  • Total Precious Metal Weight: 2.77 dwt
  • Weight: A very impressive 4.31 grams
  • Dimensions: 26.08 mm north to south including the bail x 13.31 mm east to west, measured a the widest point; double bail loop fits up to ~2 mm thick chain
  • Markings: No markings present, but tests for platinum.
  • Era: This piece is believed to date to the mid to late 20th century. It’s possible that the piece began life as a solitaire diamond jewel (the centermost/largest diamond) and the diamond-studded swoop designed and added later on-- this is just a supposition when assessing the construction to the reverse. However, beyond what our years of collecting, dealing, learning and refining our expertise enable us to determine, we cannot ascertain a more precise date range or history than this without knowledge of the piece’s exact provenance.
  • Buyer Notes: This piece is a timeless and whimsical take on the classic celestial-themed jewelry motif. It is mod, sleek and chic, and features an astounding speckled and charmingly hazy diamond that twinkles in jewel toned rainbows in the light. Because of the center diamond’s unique coloration, it is a moodier color and clarity, and very dimensional interiorally. In amazing contrast, the nineteen total side diamonds of various cuts and sizes boast top of the line color and clarity. Together, the ensemble of diamonds is totally bespoke, deliberately designed so that the color and clarities of all diamonds are celebrated and put on full, proud display. Perfect as the existing pendant it is, or a wonderful opportunity for a ring conversion, this piece is intriguing in any format.
    • This pendant does not come with a chain. Research and jewelers’ assessments advise a replacement value for this piece of at least $7950.

Specifications:

  • Center Stone Carat Weight: Professionally estimated to be 1.04 ct
  • Center Stone Shape: Round Brilliant Cut
  • Center Stone Color: H-I with naturally-occuring speckling that gives the diamond’s coloration a mistier, moodier, grayer tonality
  • Center Stone Clarity: I2 due to the organic speckling (colloquially known as “Salt & Pepper”), which are carbon inclusions that work together to appear like a miniature galaxy within the stone. Salt & Pepper diamonds are surging in popularity today and are not as frequently found in vintage jewelry, making this pendant an exciting rarity.

The Story:

A vintage pendant of exquisite make and captivating beauty, this piece is designed to recall the dynamic dance and sparkle of a shooting star. It is fabricated in solid platinum, and boasts a very nice heft accordingly. The pendent centers an impressive Round Brilliant cut diamond weighing in at over a carat, and exuding ethereality in its speckled, romantically hazy appearance. This central diamond is itself a whole galaxy in the palm of the hand, its internal inclusions something of Mother Nature’s fingerprints that evidence the diamond’s organic formation over billions of years. The presence of such characteristics is celebrated in the pendant’s star-like design, an aesthetic choice that lauds the salt and peppered appearance and elevates the otherworldly nature of the diamond to unparalleled celestial prestige.

Swooping around the central diamond is a semi-swirl of accent diamonds that together evoke the gesticulation of the Golden Ratio. These diamonds give the impression of a swell of movement and draw the eye around the pendant to appreciate every detail. Their swirled mounting is designed in the influence of 18th century jewelry construction techniques, giving the illusion of pinched collet settings from the side, though the stones are actually set within graceful double corner prongs. Furthering the shooting star look is a trio of diamond ‘trails’ that radiate with brilliant baguette diamonds, and coordinate with a larger east-west set baguette that caps the pendant just below the bail.

The pendant is very articulated with detailing that inspirits the piece with empyreal magic. Celestially themed jewels have been popular for virtually millenia, as many ancient cultures deeply revered the mystery of the heavens, relating to it both divinity and destiny. Stars represent hope, determination and purpose, their fiery luminosity symbolizing wisdom and courage. While this pendant’s celestial motif has ancestral ‘roots’, this piece is believed to date to the mid to late 20th century, and is a stunning vintage treasure that is powerfully bespoke, and abundant in meaning. With over an estimated two carats of diamonds, this piece is luxuriously enchanting with loads of sparkles.
