This elegantly crafted antique diamond necklace dates back to the turn of the 20th century and evokes the airily romantic aesthetic of Art Nouveau design. A brilliantly white and completely eye clean old mine cut diamond (F SI1) sparkles at the center of a gracefully rendered flower blossom. It stands out stunningly against the blush warmth of the rose gold setting. Yellow gold leaves adorn the top of the pendant, creating a pretty and subtle mixed metal look while adding to the sweetly feminine aesthetic. Geometric elements on the pendant and the gorgeously unique chain bring a chic edge to the dreamy romance. Believed to have been made in Europe, this was an incredible amount of work as the leaves were individually made by hand and then assembled. The links on the chain were all individually made and soldered together one by one! Made by hand over 100 years ago, this utterly unique necklace is a strikingly beautiful work of artistry, a wearable artifact of a past era. Graded F for color, the 0.35ct old mine cut diamond is brilliantly white, a rarity in Old cuts as diamonds from that time period tend to show a touch of color. Graded SI1 for clarity, it is 100% eye clean. The few inclusions are much too small to see with the naked eye. As an Old Mine cut, it is full of old world charm with brightly sparkling, wide hand cut facets. This is an extremely rare piece. The necklace is made from 10k rose and yellow gold. The chain is very unique with broad geometric links. The necklace is 21 inches long, and the pendant measures 18.7mm across (east west) and 34.1mm (north south) excluding the bail. Romantic, historied, and gorgeously designed, this antique necklace is a work of art! Show off your unique style with this beauty! Once it is sold we certainly will not be able to replace it.
