General Information:

  • Length: 18 inches 
  • Total Carat Weight: Estimated by formula, 0.55 ctw
  • Precious Metal Weight: Approx. 1.58 dwt
  • Precious Metal Material: Tests for 14-16k rose gold
  • Dimensions: 18” actual necklace length from end to end when unclasped, including the spring ring and bolt rings; chain links measure less than 0.50 mm each. The pendant is 9.42 mm north to south x 9.33 mm east to west x 7.69 mm deep/tall.
  • Weight: 2.45 grams
  • Markings: AU 585, 585, FBH (chain manufacturer)
  • Era: The pendant is a conversion piece, as the diamond pendant began life as one kind of jewel (likely an earring) and has been converted to be a pendant. It is strung on a more contemporary rosy chain. The pendant is estimated to date from between 1780-1820, though it could actually be early to mid Victorian. Without knowing an exact provenance, we cannot ascertain a more precise date beyond what our years of collecting, dealing, learning and refining our expertise enables us to determine. 
  • Buyer Notes: A striking necklace indeed, this piece consists of an antique foiled diamond pendant and a contemporary chain. What makes the pendant so unusual and even more extraordinary is that the diamonds are set within rose gold rather than solid sterling silver, which would have been far more standard for this period. We have opted to leave this piece exactly as procured, and have not buffed or polished the materials, as the time-earned patina present on this necklace is a highly desirable feature valued by collectors of historic jewels. This piece is sold as a necklace, chain included.

The Story:

Utterly captivating, this antique diamond cluster originates from the late Georgian to early Victorian years, sometime between approximately 1780 and 1820. It began its life as another adornment, likely one of a pair of earrings, and at some point in its history, was lovingly converted to the pendant we behold today. Being that it is up to 240 or so years old, the diamonds within boast the charming imperfections and variances of hand cut, hand faceted and hand finished techniques. Each one is singular in shape and proportions, their peaks and silhouettes characteristically angular and diverse.

When flipped to its reverse, we can see that these diamonds are all closed backed, which was a standard practice during this period, and continued to be implemented within jewelry-making even up to the turn of the 20th century. When diamonds and gemstones are closed backed, they are almost always also foiled on their reverse, wherein a thin sheet of silver or colored foil was slipped between the back of the diamonds and the precious metal backing.

Both the faceting matrix of the Rose Cut and the use of foiling were techniques designed specifically to catch the twinkle of candlelight, as they worked in tandem to catch the low light and reflect within the body of the stones. The metallic nature of both characteristics ethereally shoot light across and out of the stones, which visually saturates the jewel with a spectrum of moody earth tones. With today’s hygiene and day-to-day active lifestyles, we must keep in mind that foiled jewelry cannot get damp or wet, less the foiling dissolve or tarnish.

The central diamond as well as all twelve of the diamonds that halo it are set using a historic setting method called a pinch collet mounting, in which the diamonds are held using a technique that is rather the intersection of prongs and bezels: the precious metal material wraps over the girdles and is pie-pinched to seal them in place. The effect is an undulating one, which draws the eye and emphasizes the angularity of the diamonds.

Yet, the beauty of this pendant is not limited to its face, as its profile is equally impressive. Elevating the diamond face in majestic elegance, a pierced scalloped fretwork platforms the piece like a crown. On the reverse, evidence of the piece’s former life as an alternative accessory can be seen. As it exists today, an ever delicate gold (stamped) 18-inch chain has been strung through the gallery for enjoyment as a necklace.

By placing an order, you accept and agree to uphold all of Revival Fine Jewelry's terms, conditions and policies.

General Information: All additional jewelry boxes, ring boxes, and other jewelry items pictured alongside a featured listing are considered props, are for photographic and display purposes only and are not included in the transaction unless otherwise noted. Items do not come with physical documentation, appraisals, or certifications, unless explicitly stated in the item description and/or title. While jewelry is inspected upon procurement by the shop as well as prior to shipment, Revival Fine Jewelry cannot guarantee a warranty once items leave our inventory, given the delicate and individual nature of secondhand articles and the unaccountability of buyer handling post-purchase.

Shipping: All orders are carefully packed within a branded Revival Fine Jewelry gift box, secured with recycled materials when possible, and shipped within a discreet outer shipping parcel. All orders ship with tracking, insurance and signature confirmation. Shipping options are presented at checkout. Per law and inegrity, international orders are always marked as commodity imports and customers are responsible for any and all customs expenses, VAT taxes and import fees, as well as any clearance costs legally dictated by their respective destination countries. These expenses are not calculated into the pricing structure, and returns based on import costs will not be permitted.

Returns: While Revival Fine Jewelry aims to provide a smooth experience from start to finish, customers are encouraged to reach out regarding any issue or dissatisfaction, so that we may work together toward a resolution. If a return is desired, the shop must be notified of an intention to return within 3 days of confirmed delivery, and item(s) must be shipped back to the shop within 7 days of confirmed delivery. All materials (gift box, inserts, cards) must be returned with the item(s). Returns declared after the 3 day window and/or postmarked after 7 days of receipt will neither be accepted nor refunded. Customers are responsible for generating an insured return shipping label (international customers included) and relaying the tracking information to Revival Fine Jewelry. Returns that do not include full insurance and/or tracking, and are damaged or lost in transit, will not be refunded. If a return is accepted, customers will be refunded less the original cost of shipping, handling and insurance, the expense of any damages incurred, and a 10% restocking fee (of the original purchase price). All sale items, items altered or resized by the buyer post-purchase, and all storage/ boxes are considered final sale and are ineligible for a return or refund.

Sale Terms: Sale prices are only valid within the prescribed sale window, unless otherwise stated by Revival Fine Jewelry or agreed upon between Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated customer. To maintain business sustainability and general fairness, individual customers are not entitled to exclusive notification of, or owed access to, store sales antecedently. Orders processed prior to a promotion or sale, items placed on layaway prior to a sale, and payments paid through layaway prior to a sale will not be retroactively adjusted to reflect sale pricing or terms.

Specially Negotiated Deals: Items purchased at specially negotiated discounts, deals or prices through any platform between Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated customer are considered final sale, including rates arranged and agreed upon via Facebook, Instagram, email or any other method. Closing deals at special rates reflects a desire by both parties to reach an expeditious and absolute sale. The intention of specially negotiated discounts, deals or sale prices through any platform between Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated customer, is to eliminate extra expenses and/or use of time and resources to formally list or re-list items per their specific and inherent value-determining qualities, as well as avoid unseen overhead business costs, stocking obligations, and all other disclosed or undisclosed monetary and nonmonetary expenditures.

Pricing: Revival Fine Jewelry reserves the right to decrease, increase, alter and modify inventory pricing to meet market rarity, demand or value; to offset platform, transaction or seller's fees; to adapt to economic inflation and fluctuation; and to defray specific business expenses. Pricing is the sole discretion of every small business.

Regarding Brooches & Pins: Often significantly and curiously undervalued jewelry items, brooches, pins and stick pins are treasured pieces of history in this shop. Accordingly, their pricing is calculated analogous to other fine jewelry, including their symbolic meaning, rarity and historical prestige. Such pieces are typically converted to other forms of jewelry, and are therefore becoming increasingly rare in their original states. Aside from being perfectly wearable as sophisticated lapel ornaments, brooches and pins of all kinds are prime candidates for many kinds of fine jewelry conversions, including rings, earrings, pendants, and charms, if so desired by the consumer post-purchase. Revival Fine Jewelry does not perform conversion projects for customers.

Regarding Storage & Boxes: All specifications, including but not limited to the measurements, age, origins, and material compositions are supplied in good faith as professional estimations constructed using professional grade tools, years of learned and honed skills, educational resources and academic scholarship, and refined research methods. Regardless of our confidence in our descriptions and the photographs deemed viable extensions of these descriptions, we cannot guarantee the definitiveness, faultlessness, or exactitude beyond our knowledge and expertise. Kindly keep in mind that this and all items are sold as-is vintage, antique and estate secondhand wares, and consequently bear conditional wear in matter and operation commensurate with age and use.

More information on these, and more, topics may be found in the shop policies.

All layaway terms may be found here, and all shop policies may be found here.

Layaway is available for full priced, non-sale items priced $600.00 USD or greater, and items may not be combined to attain price-eligibility. Plans are offered as 3-month/90-day maximum terms.

In exchange for offering interest-free plans, customers agree to abide and uphold the following nonnegotiable terms and conditions:

• A 30% deposit is due upfront to reserve the item for layaway and pull it from public sale on all of our shopping platforms. Shipping expenses are added to this first payment unless otherwise requested.

• The remaining 70% balance is divided up into three subsequent monthly payments due on the same day of the following three months. If deliquent, a $20.00 USD late fee is added per day to an overdue payment until paid.

 In the event that a layaway installment is left unpaid for seven (7) days and no communication is received from the designated customer, the layaway plan will be presumed abandoned. While the item will be returned to public sale, all payments made hitherto are still considered final.

Layaway items are promptly boxed and shipped to the designated customer once the final payment successfully processes. Taxes, import and other legal fees are not calculated into the payments, and are the sole responsibility of the customer, whether a domestic US or international buyer. Revival Fine Jewelry is not responsible for calculating, covering or adding such costs into purchase prices.

All layaway payments as well as all items purchased through layaway plans are considered final sale; neither payments nor items may be refunded, transferred, exchanged or returned. Revival Fine Jewelry does not issue store credit.

Revival Fine Jewelry reserves the right to cancel any layaway plan at any point for any reason if fraudulant activity is suspected. In this event, the designated customer will be notified prior to the intended cancellation of their plan.
