One of the most beautiful and typical pieces of Art Deco jewellery was the dress clip! Extravagant, precious examples, mostly set with diamonds, were produced by Cartier, Boucheron and Van Cleef & Arpels in Paris from the late 1920s onwards and were soon followed by goldsmiths all over the world. The special thing about this new type of brooch was that it could no longer be worn only on the lapel, but everywhere on the dress, on the belt, on the bag and even in the hair. Often as a pair, but also individually, surprising accents could be set, which had not been possible before. The characteristic shape of these pieces was a pointed shield. Often made in identical pairs, clips were worn on both sides of the neckline, the lapel or, a little more frivolously, in the centre of a belt. Over time, the originally relatively plain clips of moderate size became increasingly extravagant and imposing. The basis for this platinum necklace is such an Art Deco clip from the late 1930s, which was repurposed in later years. The brooch has effectively become the centerpiece of an elegant necklace and features a seductive setting of white diamonds in gorgeous millegriffes settings with fine shadow gaps. A particularly beautiful shield-shaped diamond adorns the center of the sparkling element accompanied by baguette-cut diamonds. A total of 70 diamonds sparkle in competition! Six brilliant-cut diamonds are even set into the necklace itself, where they glitter in delicate bezel settings. The outstanding quality of the setting should be emphasized: all the stones have been graded with the Top Wesselton (G) colour grade and are predominantly of flawless quality. The interplay of the gemstones lends the design a cool elegance so beloved of Art Deco, which has been translated here into a form suitable for everyday wear. Excellently crafted, the wonderful clip is now a piece of wearable jewellery history as a necklace.

The historicizing formal language of the 19th century was completely discredited in the years of Art Deco. The new urge for wealth demanded new forms of expression with the means of modernity. In the application of clear symmetries and noblest materials, the new style of the new era was born: dynamic, magnificent and of never again achieved beauty and craftsmanship perfection!
