This lovely bouquet of glinting rose-cut diamonds and lustrous natural seed pearls is all wrapped up with ribbons and bows in this very sweet and feminine Edwardian-era jewel, circa 1910. Lightly and lovingly hand-fabricated in platinum, this unique and delicate necklace exemplifies the curvaceous, lacy openwork for which jewels of La Belle Époque are justly admired and prized.
The rectangular shape holds the flower basket and suspends from a white gold chain (later addition). Additionally, the pendant with loops in the back as it was likely originally worn on a velvet ribbon as a choker and can easily be converted back. Metal Type: 14K White Gold, 950 Platinum. Pearl Size: 2.0-2.5mm.
