Here is a mid century platinum emerald and diamond pendant. There is a deep dark green pear shaped cabochon emerald prong set with 3 round brilliant cut diamonds pavé set above it. There is an unusual webbed mesh design giving it a deco feel.
I have had a difficult time deciphering what this piece originally was. I purchased it as you see it without the bail, which I recently added.

Natural Emerald and Diamond Drop Pendant in Platinum
Bracelets and rings get the most wear out of all the styles of jewelry. Make sure that your jewelry is professionally cleaned and your stones checked annually.
For gold rings, the higher the karat weight, the softer the metal will be, and the easier it will scratch. Frequent polishing is unecessary. Polishing your rings removes layers of metals and will thin it out through time.
The same goes with platinum, as it is a malleable and softer metal, yet denser, which makes it last longer. Platinum is also a white metal naturally and stays white, whereas white gold is yellow that has white alloys giving it a whiter appearance, but will never be as white as platinum.
For high value items, typically of $1,000, it is a good idea to have your pieces insured on your homeowners policy or with a separate insurer like Jewelers Mutual.
