I really think I could start a sub-blog that focuses exclusively on high-caliber diamond statement necklaces. They’re so fun to look at.
I don’t know who could possibly look at this necklace and not be glad that they had seen it.
Made in the early 20th century, this necklace displays a classic and lovely Art Nouveau foliate motif. The both the slender leaves and the caps on the natural pearls are set with circular-, single-cut and rose diamonds. A very elegant and glamorous piece.
This necklace was listed in Sotheby’s December 2011 Fine Jewels auction. All images and info are thanks to Sotheby’s.
