Expressive pearl & diamond pendant in gold with chain, 1930s

The 1920s brought a new style to the world of jewellery with Art Deco: geometric abstractions, luxurious materials and luxurious furnishings were sought after and supplied by goldsmiths in Paris, London and Vienna as well as their counterparts in Berlin and overseas. The longer and wider the style spread, the more the forms evolved. In France and the USA, for example, a special form of late Art Deco called "retro" jewellery emerged in the years after 1930: The forms became stronger, more physical, the volumes larger. The pendant here is such a piece of 1930s jewelry, presenting two antique diamonds and a cultured pearl in an airy shape. Attached to a gold loop the teardrop-shaped jewelry. Flexible and fluid, the light glides over the polished surface, bringing out a melting luster on the pearl. Both diamonds is set in settings of silver. The beautiful pendant is attached to a new 45 cm anchor chain in yellow gold, which we have added. The piece of jewelry is beautifully preserved and a decorative eye-catcher that found its way to us here in Berlin.
