Art Deco 20 Carat Diamond Cascade Necklace
ABOUT THIS NECKLACE
The jubilant Jazz Age (c.1920s) is beckoning you. All you need is a fabulous flapper sheath (i.e. dress), your fiercest high heels, and this flat-out gorgeous cascade necklace. Oh my, where to start? Let's begin with the stunning articulated drop (evocative of a cool stylized bell) that shimmers and shines with European, rose-cut, and single-cut diamonds, while a larger European-cut dazzles at its center. Five tassels of lively bright white marquise diamonds (perhaps a later addition or replacement for pearls) swing and sway and sparkle below, ready to light up your every move (Charleston, anyone?) The utterly alluring assemblage suspends from a bright bezel-set stone that connects to a diamond chain accented with a 'cigar band' style ornamental element that glitters in the middle with a flower-like cluster. A magnificent marvel of artistry and remarkable sparkle. 20.45 carats total diamond weight. Hand crafted in platinum (center diamond bezel set in 14K). Focal piece measures 5 1/2 inches (from the ornamental element to the tip of the longest tassel), chain measures 16 1/2 inches.
