This necklace is awesome. Like get-outta-town, shut-the-front-door awesome. You are forewarned.
This extraordinarily fabulous necklace was made in 1880. It looks a little like the jeweler did drugs while designing it, but I mean that in the best possible way. It’s exuberantly cheerful.
The necklace consists of a series of cushion cut stones in openwork floral shaped double diamond borders, with smaller five petal flowerhead motifs in between. The smaller flowerheads each have a ruby center and diamonds on each petal. This chain suspends a pendant of similar design with one large garnet and a number of small diamonds.
Gems in this necklace: diamonds, rubies, garnets, white sapphires, aquamarines, yellow zircons, pink topaz, peridot, tourmaline, and orange topaz.
