Oh YES, an original diamond sunburst……. a symbol of life, this adorable, circular, antique diamond pendant has history.
Yes, I first bought this lovely antique item several years ago, as an art deco brooch. I know sometimes it is thought unwise to change the originality of an antique item of fine jewellery, but I felt that in this case, it was appropriate. I understand and value the originality and craftsmanship of antique items of jewellery, therefore I rarely change them, but I felt in this case, to enhance its appeal, it was most appropriate. Particularly as the transformation was undertaken with care and respect.
The brooch was made into a pendant a few years ago, by removing the bar at the back, which incidently needed a repair, then carefully had a beautiful diamond chain attached, which totally enhanced this item, and in my opinion, made it more appealing, perhaps even to the younger generation, who tend not to wear brooches.
