Description

DATE: Art Deco, c.1920

A stunning Art Deco diamond pendant necklace dating from the 1920s. The stone is a pear-shaped briolette cut, 4.12 carats, and mounted under platinum bail. The triangular facets catch the light both on the way in, and on the other side after it's passed through the stone; it's a wonder to behold. Crafted in platinum.

The earliest record of the briolette cut go way back to the 1600s, when Jean-Baptiste Tavernier returned to Europe from India with examples of the cut. They went out of fashion through the 18th and 19th Centuries, as more "advanced" cuts (precursors to the modern brilliant) came into fashion, however they came right back in during the Edwardian era, and remained popular until the 1950s.
