Belle Epoque Opal and Diamond Choker Necklace

This truly magnificent and majestic treasure, dating from the turn-of-the-century - circa 1900, perfectly reflects Gilded Age opulence and Edwardian-era femininity. Vertical rows of four luminous, multi-chromatic, pastel-hued opals alternate with rows of three twinkling diamond-set flowers, each centered with a shimmering natural seed pearl. This rare and splendorous antique choker, or 'dog collar' necklace is masterfully handcrafted in platinum for the flowers, and 18 karat yellow gold for the opals, and measures just shy of 1 and 3/4 inches wide by 12 inches in length. The 78 opals have a total weight of approximately 80 carats.
