Bonus post! Happy 2013!
This necklace is like visual Xanax. I look at it and I feel a happy, floaty assurance that everything is okay.
Made in 1910, this lovely, lovely thing is really more of a choker – it measures a mere 13.5 inches. It’s designed as a pierced old mine-cut diamond scalloped band, bezel-set along the center with a graduated series of old mine-cut diamonds, mounted in platinum. I’m not sure what I’d wear it with, but I know for damn sure I’d make it work somehow if I ever had the chance.
