Stars And Starlets

Delicate Art Deco Necklace With Diamonds In Platinum, Circa 1930

In the Art Deco era, the world of film set the tone in fashion things, the world of stars and starlets. And in the black and white films, sparkling white diamonds looked far more advantageous than colored stones or yellow gold. Hardly any film wardrobe of the female leads in those years was therefore complete without diamond jewelry. Diamond pendants were created in numerous designs, large, festive necklaces for the evening as well as delicate, almost casual-looking pendants on delicate chains that could also be worn during the day. The basis of the designs was always geometry. Clear shapes, articulated by delicate saw work, millegrains and clever cutouts define the look of the time. The diamonds are always set in platinum, creating the white, bright impression that was so longed for. The necklace here speaks that language. Mounted on a delicate chain is an elongated pendant. Three 8/8 cut diamonds occupy the top element on the chain. A delicate frame of fine arches closes the element to the outside. Then at the bottom, another diamond is added. It is a transitional cut diamond of about a quarter carat, white and with very good brilliance. It is set in a moveable manner, allowing it to play with the light in a particularly beautiful way. A frame of delicate arches also surrounds this diamond. It looks like a fine flower. The chain of the necklace was renewed in white gold in the past. So now the piece can be worn without worry.
