Victorian Lapis & Rose Cut Diamond Pendant

$2,200

Lapis lazuli has been mined since 4000 BC, and has been prized the world over not only as a decorative stone but also for the ultramarine dye made from ground and powdered lapis. King Tut's sarcophagus was heavily lined with lapis lazuli, Michelangelo favored the blue paint made from its powder, and Catherine the Great had an entire room in her palace adorned with lapis doors, fireplaces, and picture frames. This beautiful Victorian pendant features a large oval slab of lapis set with an infinity knot wreath of rose cut diamonds.
