Art Deco Onyx and Diamond Lavalière Necklace
ABOUT THIS NECKLACE
The chain alone is an Art Deco masterwork. Exquisitely fashioned in platinum, distinctive openwork navette-shaped and wire-wrapped paper clip-like links alternate with quintets of natural pearls and glossy black round oval beads. Yet, as striking as it is, this lovely length of elements culminates in an utterly breathtaking pendant. Joined to the chain by way of a fancy diamond set component--accented with a dash of onyx--the pendant features a beautifully shaped glossy black onyx shimmering around its edges with bright single-cut diamonds and accented down its center with a diamond-set stylistic sword design. A riveting and ravishing jewel sure to elevate any ensemble. Total diamond weight, 2.90 carats. Hand fabricated in platinum, circa 1920s. Chain measures 22 inches.
