I thought I was diversifying by picking a non-Cartier piece to show you with this one, but it turns out I just hadn’t read the whole description.
This beautiful Belle Epoque sautoir was made by Cartier in the 1910’s. The necklace itself is a mesh made of strung-together seed pearls, gathered at the front by a diamond wreath link. The seed pearl mesh suspends a detachable cabochon drop-shaped sapphire with diamond cap, to the diamond-set clasp. The piece is signed Cartier Paris, no. C7425.
This seed pearl, sapphire, and diamond sautoir, Cartier, was listed in Christie’s November 2012 Magnificent Jewels sale. All images and info are thanks to Christie’s.
