White Treasures

Elegant diamond bracelet of the Art Déco in platinum, around 1930

Jewellery in elegant, cool white - that has been the dream of jewellery designers since the late 19th century. But the technical possibilities put a stop to this dream for some time. Diamonds were available, but the tricky part was the question of the right metal. At first, only silver was available to create white jewelry from, but the metal tarnishes and can leave discolorations on skin and clothes. Finally, it was platinum and, in the 1910s, white gold that found their way into jewellers' workshops and onto ladies' wrists and décolletés. This bracelet is an elegant graphic design from the Art Deco period. With the incomparable precision that distinguished the jewels of the early 20th century, the rectangular elements, each set with a transitional-cut diamond, are articulated by millet handles. In all, fifteen brilliant-cut diamonds of a combined total weight of approximately 1.50 carats have been worked. The settings of the diamonds are all set together in a moveable manner and a simple link chain completes the jewel with its radiant showpiece. The bracelet is crafted from solid platinum, giving it a cool white glow. Based on the materials, the design and the diamond cuts, we date the bracelet to around 1930.
