Next to this are 6 beautiful green emeralds of superb color! The chief's headdress is composed of 7 graduated feathers. These are set with 11 single cut antique diamonds of great fire that is characteristic of the antique diamonds. The edges of the feathers and headdress are accented with cannetille or beaded edges, a characteristic of fine jewelry from the Edwardian period. The diamonds and emeralds are all set a jour (open backed in order to let light through). If desired this could easily be converted to a wonderful pendant. This is a magnificent gem!
