This 1930’s aquamarine and diamond necklace is another one that I pinned on Pinterest pre-blog and I’ve seen it all over the place ever since then. I think it deserves its own post.
The pendant is signed for Trabert & Hoeffer, Inc and Mauboussin, while the chain, which was added later, is signed by Cartier. No wonder this thing is gorgeous, with all of those big names working on it.
The necklace is set with a large step-cut aquamarine with a baguette diamond detail necklace set with circular and single-cut diamonds. The chain is 20 inches long, so it’s a lower-hanging necklace (just FYI for those of us who are planning what to wear it with). It would be stunning dangling mid-decolletage in a plunging black dress, or hanging over fabric in a more modest outfit.
This 1930’s aquamarine and diamond necklace was sold in Sotheby’s May 2012 Magnificent Jewels sale. All images and info are thanks to Sotheby’s.
