Elegant necklace with diamonds in platinum & gold, around 1925
Cool, elegant and modern: The necklace here sets glittering diamonds in platinum. Two pendulums of different lengths are set under a small bow, each holding a diamond in a square setting as the highlight. A wide frame set off by a shadow gap magnifies the appearance of the diamond and, in its angular form, gives the design a modern touch. The shape of the necklace is called a négligé necklace. This particular design, with two ribbon bows of different lengths intended to appear tied as if inattentive or neglected, "négligée" in fact, was a big fashion around 1900. Here we encounter it in the updated formal language of the 1920s, a little more straightforward, more angular, more geometrically ordered than in the years before. The fixed gold pendant with the platinum face is attached to a delicate silver chain. A firm lock with safety clasp provides carefree retention. The hallmark on the back proves that the piece was made in Germany. We discovered it in Stuttgart and are curious where its path will lead it.
