Today’s piece is all about color. Glorious color! This blue and yellow sapphire necklace is exceptional in many ways, all of which will be immediately apparent when I show you the picture.
Are you ready??
Helllll to the yes.
This luscious blue and yellow sapphire necklace is the work of the incomparable Cartier. It’s gold and platinum, set with a fringe of alternating rectangular cut blue and yellow sapphires, alongside circular and marquise cut diamonds.
It’s 15 inches long, so it would sit close to the neck. I think my very favorite part – except for those amazing stones – is the fact that the gemstone fringe goes all the around. So decadent, so glamorous. Do you need sapphires on the back of your neck? No. But why not have them, if you can?
This beauty is retro, dating to 1957. Can’t you see it at a glamorous late 1950’s cocktail party? The bright gemstones would sure pick up the colors of what ever stunning cocktail dress its glamorous owner would surely have been wearing.
Yes, yes, and yes. Aren’t sapphires magnificent?
If this color scheme is working for you too, check out this post from my archive. Apparently this is a combo that’s caught my eye before.
What do you think, my darlings? Do you love this necklace as much as I do?
