Art Deco Emerald and Diamond Watch
ABOUT THIS WATCH
The word 'exquisite' barely begins to describe the intricate beauty of this exceptional early-Art Deco wristwatch, expertly and delicately hand fabricated in platinum, and dating back to the first or second decade of the twentieth century. The round timepiece (measuring just a tad under 1 inch diameter) is encircled with lively bright green calibre emeralds, punctuated by small round diamonds, bordered in turn, inside and out, by tiny glittering rose-cut diamonds. The calibre emeralds and diamonds continue on the extended band links and transition to expandable curved links. Roman numerals on the dial add the finishing touch to this chic, sophisticated and stunning Jazz Age jewel (definitely not intended, then or now, for everyday wear). Total diamond weight - .70 carat, total emerald weight - 1.15 carats. Note: Avoid exposure to water.
