Circa 1900s, this classic antique 14K diamond seed pearl starburst pendant brooch is one of the jewelry collectors' favorites. It is set with 8 small seed pearls (approx. 2.5mm each) and one white, clean and fiery old European cut diamond in the center, forming a glorious 8-ray starburst décor.

The center diamond specifics: approx. 4.75mm in diameter or 0.44 ct, I/J color, VS2 clarity, the grading is very conservative and strongly influenced by the yellow gold mounting, meaning the actual stone can be whiter.

More amazingly, this brooch pendant has a foldable bale on the top and a pin mechanism, such a design allows it to be worn as either a pendant or pin. I love the versatility of this piece!
