About

An incredible platinum and diamond antique necklace from the French Belle Epoque Era ("Beautiful Era") which spanned from the late 1800's to early 1900's.

This time of optimism and prosperity was known for great advances in fashion, cuisine, arts, entertainment, science and medicine.

The center diamond is approximately 1.00ct with a color of E-F and SI1-2 clarity. The accent diamonds have an approximate total weight of 0.50ct, I color, SI2-I1 clarity.

The pendant measures 33mm wide by 37mm long. The chain measures 18" in length and has a box clasp with safety closure. Purchase of this necklace includes a complimentary appraisal for insurance purposes.
