An exquisite Edwardian round platinum and diamond pendant worked as a fern frond tightly curling around itself. This pendant is top-tier example of the lacy delicacy that could be achieved using knife-edge platinum settings to highlight very high-quality old European cut diamonds. The metal nearly disappears behind the stones. The setting is beautifully pierced and finished with fine millegraining. The pendant retains its original diamond-set bail. The diamonds average G/H color and VS clarity. Tested and guaranteed platinum.

Ferns were considered an exotic luxury in Edwardian homes and the plant was often used as a jewelry motif. Cartier may have been the first jeweler to portray the plant in platinum and diamonds with a pair of brooches made for Wilhelmina Cassel in 1903.

Origin: probably France, ca. 1905. Condition: excellent, all original. Size: 1-1/16” diameter (excluding bail). Weight: 5.8 grams. Approximate Total Diamond Weight: 2.63 carats.
