And MELS ANTIQUE JEWELRY TOO. This is an ORIGINAL ANTIQUE RELIGIOUS PENDANT that was made in the ART DECO PERIOD of 1925 – 1935. It is made from PLATINUM (front) and 18K YELLOW GOLD (back) and it appears to have been rhodium plated to give it an all platinum look. The pendant displays a RELIEF of ST. THERESE/ TERESA of the CHILD JESUS, affectionately known as “the Little Flower”, who has been hand carved in MOTHER OF PEARL. She is holding CHRIST ON THE CROSS with a CHAIN OF ROSES. Theresa said I will spend my heaven doing good upon earth. I shall let fall from heaven a shower of roses. My work begins after death. The frame of the pendant is set with 48 ROSE CUT DIAMONDS that weigh approx. These diamonds have a grayish color that was typical for the period. The pendant alone measures just over 1-1/8 long by 3/4 at the widest point. The 17.5 chain is made from platinum, stamped 950, and it is not original, but suits it perfectly. The total weight is 5.4 grams. The back has a round dark spot where a sticker was for years. FINE DETAILONE OF A KINDBEAUTIFUL CONDITION & QUALITY! Be sure to add me to your. A NOTE ABOUT OUR PHOTOGRAPHY Taking pictures of diamonds to be displayed on a computer screen can be difficult, often resulting in the diamonds looking dark (especially rose cut diamonds) when in reality they are not. If you are looking at any of our pictures and feel that the diamonds look dark, please refer to the description of the item that states the accurate color and clarity of the stones. Also, jewelry and/or diamond grading is done under 10X magnification. When you super-size our photos you will see the item in 100X magnification. Please be aware that you may see things that cannot be seen with your eyes or a jewelers loupe. Sometimes these magnified images can make the item look distorted or appear to have problems when in reality it is fine. I list only high quality pieces and avoid those with problems or in need of repair unless it is described as such in the listing. If you are seeing something that you are not sure of, please inquire about it. Dont hesitate to ask for comparison photos if cant decide between 2 or more pieces.
