Antique French Belle Epoque 6.75 Carat Diamond Necklace

About

We've always maintained that the backsides of fine Belle Epoque jewels are prettier than the front sides of their modern counterparts, and this astonishingly beautiful necklace is a case in point! Handcrafted in gossamer-like platinum during the early twentieth century, this truly exquisite and breathtaking lavaliere glitters with 326 high-quality European-cut diamonds accentuated with fine milgraining. The leafy bottom section and the fan-shaped top section seamlessly articulate back and forth, adding subtle movement to the delicate lacework. A classic diamond bow knot bail and loop crown this sublime, museum-quality masterpiece. Circa 1910. The lavaliere suspends from an original, 18" platinum and diamond chain. 3 and 1/8 inches high by just over 2 inches wide.
