Early 19th Century Diamond Padlock

Early 19th Century Diamond Padlock

C.1820. A very pretty and rare English diamond padlock pin/pendant. The padlock is made of 19 sparkly old cut diamonds, and the center stone is an early 20th century faux pink sapphire in the size of 5.06 ct, which was most likely replaced back then; when lab tested, the center pink stone showed the flame infusion that matches the early invention. There are two natural rubies at the top. The diamonds are overall bright and clean, and the pink sapphire and rubies are all in beautifully saturated colors. The padlock is set in 15k gold and silver. All stones are tested and measured professionally. Overall this piece is in great condition.

Total Drop (N-S): Approximately 24mm (0.94")
