Antique Victorian Edwardian 10k Gold Diamond Ostby Barton Lavaliere Pendant
This delicate Edwardian pendant is marked on the top of its bale for the company of Ostby and Barton adding another layer of history to this beautiful piece. Ostby, a jewelry designer and partner in the company, perished on the Titanic (yes, THE Titanic). Feather-light feeling when worn, this piece is finely crafted from 10k yellow gold with a lovely amount of detail, particularly for its petite profile. The feminine and curvy silhouette is centered with a buttercup setting that secures a tiny, yet brightly shimmering diamond. An equally small yet sweetly rendered flower, secures the dangling freshwater pearl at the bottom that sways just slightly.

This piece is fresh looking, it must have been tucked away and well. Taken care of, the signs of wear are noticeable only on close inspection. The setting is bright and fresh looking with little surface wear and no dents or irregularities. The diamond is bright and sparkling without any chipping or surface wear. The fresh waterpearl is creamy with a fresh patina and little surface wear.

There are no irregularities to the setting or signs of solder or repair and the piece has a firm shape. Width 10mm, diamond is 1mm. Mark 10k and OB on top of bale for Ostby & Marton. Material 10k gold, natural diamond.

A piece of jewelry that has been signed by the designer is immediately of higher value, because it definitively places the work in their oeuvre. This gives the piece a personal history that it might not otherwise havefixed in place, time, style, and intent. In addition, signed designer pieces indicate that a designer viewed the work as worthy enough to want his or her name to be forever associated with it.

This indicates that the piece was made with a concentration on high-quality construction or perhaps trendy or progressive design. Miniature versions of classic antique and vintage styles are especially collectable. Not only are these small pieces charming, but they also require an advanced level of craftsmanship to render all the tiny details.
