In the Victorian era, this type of "honeymoon" brooch was often gifted to a bride from her groom, as the crescent symbolized the "delights of the night".
This crescent pendant was made in Europe c.1870. Rose cut diamonds sparkle across this substantial pendant, with a lovely fleur-de-lis pattern on its outer perimeter.
This pendant was originally a brooch, which I have converted into a pendant. It is not hallmarked but, tests about 14k-15k gold, silver topped. It measures 45mm by 41.2mm (without the bail, which I created from the original pin), with an estimated 1.38 ct of diamonds, and an overall weight of 11.8g. It is in lovely antique condition, with wear commensurate with age and use. You will receive the pictured pendant.
