Victorian Diamond Encrusted Arrow Pendant with Silver Front and 14K Gold Back


Circa the 1870’s, this diamond encrusted arrow has been converted from a pin into a pendant that can be worn in a variety of ways. The arrow contains 32 natural Rose Cut diamonds that vary in shape and size, from round to oblong. Each diamond catches the light in a unique way, and the intricate details of the hand carved antique stones are mesmerizing.  The quills of the feather are delineated, with space between each quill that reveals its careful workmanship. The age of this piece and its rustic, handcrafted quality gives it a beautiful naïveté. 

The arrow is a strong symbol of direction and sacrifice. It brings to mind St. Sebastian and stories of miracles and martyrdom. It can also be worn to represent momentum, movement, and protection. 

The pendant has a silver front and 14k gold back. We added half-bails to both ends of the pendant so that the arrow can be worn pointing up or down, or could be used as a chain extender. 

The pendant contains .5 of a carat of diamonds. The 32 natural Rose Cut diamonds range from 2 mm to 1.25 mm. The arrow measures 2 3/16” x 9/16”. It weighs 4.2 grams. It is unmarked but acid tests as silver and 14k gold. 

The pendant is pictured here on both the 9K Gold Victorian Fettered Link English Watch Chain and Vintage 14K Gold Italian Snake Chain, available through our shop.
