Each Diamond is equally scintillating, and the Sapphire has a wonderful royal blue hue. We imagine this pendant would look stunning when worn on a fine antique Gold chain, adorning your décolletage.

EXCELLENT. This Austro-Hungarian Sapphire Diamond drop pendant is in excellent condition! Each of the gemstones are perfectly secure within their settings, and in fantastic condition without chips or nibbles. There is very minimal wear to note, and considering her age this is quite incredible! You could remove the bale section and wear the pendant without it, but we think she is remarkable as she is!
