Vintage .46ct Diamond Necklace
Talk to a GIA trained Jewelry Specialist
Why Talking Is a Good Idea
Buying jewelry online is intimidating. We should know. We've been selling online for 17 years.
We've taken a totally different approach. A personal one.
Remember how experiences used to be intimate? Jewelry buying should be an intimate experience.
It isn't about having the largest selection, or selling the cheapest (i.e. low quality) jewelry. We’re not aiming to be the Amazon of jewelry. We are a family-owned jewelry store in Modesto (California) that is very picky about quality and design. That's been our calling card since 1989.
Beautiful jewelry should stir the soul. Before selecting a piece for display we ask, “How does this design make me feel?”
In a world of infinite choice, it’s nice to slow down and appreciate the work of master craftsmen.
Don’t use your credit card to buy this. Not yet.
It’s 5:40 AM in Modesto right now. Call us and see why we fell in love with this piece. One shouldn’t ever have to buy jewelry online without asking all your questions first. Oh, that’s right, that’s what makes us different from the thousands of online jewelry sites out there.
When you call you aren’t talking to an agent in a call center. Your talking to either Ron Yates, Ashton Yates-Woolley, Marissa Stewart, Mechelle Yates, or Justice Carillo at our Modesto store location.
The diamond is an antique cut called Old European Cut diamond. It measures right at 5.0mm diameter, and by formula we estimate the weight at .46ct, just a smidge under 1/2ct. The Old Euro's have a special charm to them. They were all hand cut, and generally have smaller tables, larger more noticeable facets, and an open culet on the bottom. This is a very nice example, with being near colorless at I - J color and VS2 clarity.
On the sides of the 18K white gold hexagon mounting you will see a hand chased flower design - adding more beauty and character to this vintage piece.
When we purchased this pendant, the bail was damaged, so we made one that is vintage style, and is set with some small round diamonds. We think it matches nicely!
The chain is 14k white gold and measures 18" long.
