Width 10mm, diamond is 2mm. Secure, is likely not original. Material Tests for 10k gold setting (bale tests for 9k gold), natural diamond. Movement in jewelry is an indicator of a higher end piece, as it demonstrates that the designer considered how the jewelry would look and feel when it was actually worn.For example, high-end pieces often adjust to different necklines or wrists for comfort and a seamless look. Other times, movement is strategically incorporated for gemstones to catch the light or to enhance the sparkle of a certain gemstone cut. 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. _gsrx_vers_1233 GS 8.1.1 (1233).
