The ancient author Pliny once attributed to the pearl "the utmost height of price of all things". Natural pearls were considered marvels of nature; unlike gemstones, which for a long time were still quite simply cut, they were found in precisely that state of beauty in which we also know them today. Thus, the pearl had to share its rank with the diamond only when more complex diamond cuts elicited more facets and thus more brilliance from this stone, which was almost inconspicuous in its rough state. For a long time, the two were considered the most precious jewels, the pinnacle of luxury. The present bracelet shows us how wonderfully the silky luster of the oriental pearl and the cool brilliance of an old European cut diamond harmonize visually. The three pearls are natural pearls that were created without human intervention and were once wrested from the sea by pearl fishermen. They have a silky luster and are of slightly pressed bouton shape, so that they do not stand too far up. In keeping with their preciousness, the pearls are set alternately with four large diamonds totaling about 4.00 ct. A narrow band joins the sides of the centerpiece so that the piece maintains a delicate, elegant appearance despite the size of the central diamonds and pearls. The narrow band is designed in the form of a twisted cord set with small diamonds. Each link is movable and nestles softly against the wrist. All elements are crafted from solid platinum, at that time the most precious of all precious metals and many times more expensive than gold. The bracelet comes with an independent gemological certificate. It is very well preserved and a wonderful example of the timeless elegance of white jewels created in the early years of the 20th century.
