The Gretna - Victorian Diamond 14k Gold Cherub Pendant

A stunning antique pendant featuring a cherub or putti and hallmarked 14k yellow gold pendant. The pendant is holding an old european cut diamond ball. Love the great spherical shape of the piece, the pendant is designed to indent inward giving the piece a three dimensional look. The gold appears to be covered with a layer of what looks like gold colored paint that has chipped in places revealing yellow gold underneath. Even though the gold has some peeling, the cherub appears to be in mint condition. Love the colorful coloring of the wings and the great mischievous look on the face of the little putti. A great part of the design is the cherub holding an old cut diamond adding to the piece. Estimated early 20th century. This is truly a beautiful unique piece.
