This Victorian Pave Turquoise Diamond "Bombe" pendant is exquisite! Speckled with bright blue Turquoise gems and a star-set Diamond, this pendant is rich in texture.
We certainly have a thing for Pave Turquoise, but how can you not? Pave settings were designed to celebrate the integrity and form of the gemstone, as well as give the appearance of quaint cobbled streets! The rope border and high dome of the pendant also give this pendant a slight Etruscan revival vibe, stylistically dating this pendant to the 1880s.
