Antique / vintage pendant. High carat gold (at least 22k) diamonds, baroque pearl and the reverse with minakari / minaar enamel. Made in India, 19th - first half of 20th century.


Total length is 2 3/8 inches (6cm) long. Weighs 15.2 grams.


32 irregular shaped faceted table cut diamonds total approx 1.50ct. Classic Mughal Indian design. Kundan set diamonds. Design consisting of a central octogonal gold cell ringed by smaller and larger leaf-shaped gold cells with flaring decoration and a crown on top. Each gold cell is set with a very bright, white, table cut, Indian diamond. A gold loop and wire suspend a pear-shaped baroque pearl at the bottom.


The loop is very sturdy and has ample space for good sized chain. It would have typically been suspended by a thick cord of silk.


The back of the pendant is equally stunning: decorated in the rare minakari / minaar enamelling technique - all in green, with a bird on the back of the large central cell. The surrounding cells look much like the feathers of a peacock.


Gold was acid tested for at least 22k.


Good condition.

The 2012 appraisal is available to new owner upon request. See examples of kundan set diamonds in Christies catalogue June 2019 with estimates of up to $50 000.000
