An elegant love knot pendant in 18K gold and platinum set with rose cut diamonds and a ruby at the center. The gold surface has a matte finish typical of French jewelry at the end of the 19th century. The pendant was originally a scarf clip and still retains the clip mechanism. A double bail allows it to be worn as a pendant. The bail’s surface finish matches the rest of the knot, and the maker’s marks are applied to the bail rather than to the body of the clip, suggesting that the double bail is original to the piece. France, ca. Excellent condition; original finish; no dings.11/16" diameter (excluding bail). 2.8 grams.

Condition: Good
