Extra information: Pain de sucre cabochon - Pain de sucre is French for "sugarloaf". A type of cabochon that, in contrary to the normal cabochon, is polished in a way that the top of the stone is really sticking out in a (smooth) point. The naming of such polishing refers to a sugarloaf in its traditional form. Namely a tall gently-tapering cylinder with a conical top, in which refined sugar was exported from the Caribbean and eastern Brazil from the 17th to 19th centuries.

Diamonds: 24 single brilliant cut diamonds (also called 8/8) with a total estimated weight of approx. 0.72 crt.
Note: All diamond weights, color grades and clarity are approximate since the stones were not removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting.
