Description

DATE: Edwardian, c.1905

A showstopping example of Edwardian jewellery at its finest. This stunning necklace is made by the esteemed Hancocks & Co. of London, set with over two carats of old cut diamonds, four natural pearls, and a vibrant emerald centrepiece it's both elegant and dazzling in equal parts. It was made in the very early 20th Century, expertly crafted in platinum and 18k yellow gold with graceful flowing lines and ribbon-like curves - all above three diamond-set pearl drops. The pendant rests on a platinum trombone chain, and the piece remains paired with its original fitted presentation box.

Hancocks was established in London - on the corner of Bond Street and Bruton Street - in 1849, by Mr Charles Frederick Hancock. The company quickly established a strong reputation by selling exceptional pieces of fine jewellery, silver, and gemstones - within a year they had secured a Royal Warrant by Queen Victoria. In 1858, the Queen commissioned Hancocks to make the Victorian Cross, Britain's highest military honour, which they still do to this day.
