French Belle Époque Diamond and Natural Pearl Lavaliere
ABOUT THIS NECKLACE
Roughly coinciding with the early-20th-century British Edwardian period, French Belle Époque jewels display similar design characteristics, and this lovely, light and lacy and fabulously feminine lavalière necklace is a stunning case in point. Intricately hand fabricated in platinum over 18K yellow gold, and measuring a striking 2 1/4 inches long, the two- part design is comprised of a glittering and shimmering rose-cut diamond and natural freshwater pearl-studded teardrop surmounted by a matching trapezoidal top, all of which suspend from the original pearl-dotted platinum chain measuring 16 inches. An enduring delight. Total diamond weight, .50 carat.
