Brutalist Diamond Necklace - French
ABOUT THIS NECKLACE
From 1960s France, this chic and striking example of the brief Brutalist period (an art aesthetic more commonly expressed in mid-20th-century modern furniture and wall sculptures), belies its rough hewn, bark textured appearance with supple, lithely fashioned necklace links, emblazoned in front with 24 bright-white and sparkling round brilliant-cut diamonds, together weighing 2.75 carats. An uncommonly cool one! In 18K gold, it measures 16 inches.
