32 irregular shaped faceted table cut diamonds total approx 1.50ct.
Classic Mughal Indian design. Kundan set diamonds.  Design consisting of a central octogonal gold cell ringed by
smaller and larger leaf-shaped gold cells with flaring decoration and a crown on top. Each gold cell is set with a very bright, white, table cut, Indian diamond. A gold loop

and wire suspend a pear-shaped baroque pearl at the bottom.    <P><P>
The loop is very sturdy and has ample space for good sized chain. It would have typically been suspended by a thick cord of silk.   <P><P>
The back of the pendant is equally stunning: decorated in the rare minakari / minaar enamelling technique - all in green, with a bird on the back of the large

central cell. The surrounding cells look much like the feathers of a peacock.   <P><P>

Good condition.</p>
