This necklace is an exceptionally pretty little lavaliere.
It appears very simple at first, but it’s actually not. Look at the scalloped detail of the diamond-set cross bar, the diamond embellishment on the pearl settings, the contrast of the mixed-metal setting. I also love that one pearl is cream and the other is gray; I think that (along with the aforementioned details) really take this necklace up a notch from “oh, that’s pretty” to being something special.
This extraordinarily fabulous piece was sold by Humphy Butler and is currently listed in their archive. All images and info are thanks to Humphry Butler.
