I’ve had this necklace up on my screen for a couple of days. I like the ambiance it adds to my screen. That, and I knew it was going to be really hard to do it justice in photos.
This diamond necklace is by Marchak. It is designed as a series of articulated foliate and floral swags set with single- and circular-cut diamonds. The diamond swags are highlighted with yellow gold rope work.
The foliate diamond swags are fairly Edwardian in nature, but the gold rope detailing makes it modern.
This necklace was listed in Sotheby’s November 2012 Magnificent Jewels sale. All images and info are thanks to Sotheby’s.
