Vintage 18k Yellow Gold, Agate and Carnelian Jack of Diamonds Pendant c.1970s
According to those who ascribe tarot-like meaning to ordinary playing cards, the Jack of Diamonds represents a drive and craftiness in all financial endeavors. This large, one-of-a-kind pendant from the earliest days of the 1970s is thought to have been custom-made for such a person: a high roller fully aware of their ability at the tables. A solid slab of agate makes up the body of the card, with deep rust-colored Carnelian forming the Jack himself and his diamonds. Actual brilliant cut, pavé set diamonds make up the four Js at the corners, with 18-karat gold forming a ring around the card as well as the bail at the very top. A piece that captures the thrill of a victorious gamble, this piece is a natural adornment for the voguish rogue.
