1.00ct Briolette Diamond Charm/Pendant
Briolettes have always been a favorite cut of mine - I am infinitely fascinated by the prism-like faceting, and how the diamond catches light and colors as it sways with movement. One of the oldest diamond cuts, *Napoleon Bonaparte presented a 263 ct diamond briolette necklace to his empress consort, Marie Louise in 1811. It featured 19 oval- and pear-shaped briolette-cut diamonds."
This particular one is beyond charming with its slightly elongated and elegant pear shape.
Measures 8.89mm x 5.76mm. Chain is 14kt gold, Italian-made and 18" in length.
