18ct yellow gold & Silver Set Belle Epoque Diamond Pendant / Brooch c1900 with detachable 18ct yellow gold brooch fitting and 18ct white gold chain.

Setting diamonds in silver, “silver set”, was a technique used in the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian periods, as white coloured gold and platinum were not yet available. A very thin layer of silver was applied to the gold, on which the diamonds were set, to show them off to their best advantage (as the yellow would reflect and distort the white colour of the diamonds).
