Description

DATE: Edwardian, c.1910

An exquisite Edwardian era negligee pendant dating from the early 20th century, circa 1910. It's set with a dazzling array of old cut diamonds, including a .54ct central old European cut, old mine cuts, and old single cuts - totalling over 1.5 carats. It's incredibly finely made, incorporating elements of the concurrent Art Nouveau movement, featuring flowing lines, millegrain settings, and platinum / yellow gold bi-metal colour palette. The two drops are articulated at the diamond points, and hang at different lengths - this difference giving the necklace its "negligee" designation.
