We've seen many pendant watches in this distinctive style (think Faberge-esque), but this is the very first lavalière necklace we've come across. Artfully hand fabricated in platinum around the turn-of-the-last-century by Henry Blank & Company*. The graceful Frenchy design is colored with blue guilloche enamel enhanced with small sparkling diamonds and a pair of lustrous freshwater pearls. The pendant measures 1 7/8 inches and suspends from a matching 14-inch chain. Elegant and stunning.


*From the January 2006 issue of Antiques Magazine. Like most nineteenth- and early twentieth-century jewelry manufacturers in Newark, New Jersey, Henry Blank and Company until recently had been long forgotten. However, it was one of the largest and most successful Newark firms from the 1890s until well after World War II. The finest jewelry retailers sold first its jewelry and subsequently its watches. Beginning about 1910 the company’s specialty was women’s jeweled wristwatches, examples of which are most often seen on the market today. The company also made women’s pendant, chatelaine, and purse style watches as well as men’s wrist- and pocket watches.
