A thoroughly lovely and very feminine pendant necklace, circa 1900, exquisitely sculpted in richly textured 18 karat yellow gold. A gorgeous and graceful foliate design, crowned with a bouquet filled vase on top, twinkles with tiny rose-cut diamonds and a central antique cushion-cut diamond, all of which are set in platinum. A smattering of tiny natural pearls add shimmer to this extra sweet and lovely antique necklace with a hint of Art Nouveau style.
Stunning and versatile one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry - a necklace (two variations), a brooch (four variations) and a head-piece! It was created in France in the 1910's. The piece was made of platinum and set with a 6.29 cts cushion cut diamond in the center, Old European cut and rose cut diamonds. [Click to source to see variations.
