A beautiful original Edwardian opal and diamond pendant created in the garland style, circa 1910. During this period jewelry became far more delicate in design as techniques improved for diamond cutting and setting. These old European cut diamonds are collet and millegrain set with an estimated diamond weight of 1.10cts. Opals were discovered in the 1890’s with these two fine examples measuring approx. 1.50cts and 1.10cts respectively. 

 

Stylistically this lovely pendant has been designed with articulated laurel motif sections, denoting ‘triumph’ in the lore of floral symbolism. The pendant is attached to a fine barleycorn 18k chain 17” long.
