An English Victorian 18 karat gold acrostic necklace. The heart charms consist of 161 rose-cut diamonds that have the approximate total weight of 3.20 carats. The center of these charms have 2 emeralds, with amethyst, ruby, sapphire and topaz that have the approximate total weight of .90 carat. Acrostic jewelry, which was immensely popular in the highly sentimental Victorian era, was actually originally introduced to the popular market by the famed French house of Mellerio, who created acrostic jewels for Marie Antoinette. A piece of acrostic jewelry is a piece that includes a series of center stones whose first letter of their common names spells out a word of affection. For example, this necklace, whose charms feature center stones of Diamond, Emerald, Amethyst, Ruby, Emerald (again), Sapphire and Topaz in that order is meant to say "DEAREST." Each of the heart-shaped charms in this particular piece features not only the meaning-filled center stone but also several carats worth of rose-cut diamonds, that encrust their faces.
|Dimensions: Necklace 15" length; each charm 1/2" x 1/2".|
