This is an exquisite collectible heirloom pendant made of platinum and diamonds with a hand carved mother of pearl center. It is a miniature 3D work of art that includes Saint Anthony of Padua holding Baby Jesus.
Saint Anthony, the patron saint of lost things and missing persons, actually became the closest assistant to Francis of Assisi, the founder, of course, of the Franciscan order.
The detail is magnificent and this one of a kind piece is a keeper. The pendant weighs approximately 6.9 grams and contains 120 diamonds. 66 single cut at a total of 1.98 Carat with a color of H and clarity S11. There are 52 sphere cut diamonds at a total of 1.04 Carat with a color of I and clarity of S13. There is also 1 single cut at .04 carat and 1 single cut at .02 carat. The overall size of the pendant is 2 inches; it is 1.75 inches long without including the link. It measures 1 3/16″ wide and the center piece of artwork on Mother of Pearl Shell is 1/2 inch by 3/4 inch.
This one of a kind collectible is a beautifully detailed treasure that was passed down through a local family for generations and it is now available but will not last long as this is one of those most treasured pieces that we keep and give to our children’s children. This would make a magnificent holiday gift and even more so a CHRISTMAS GIFT.
