Edwardian Aquamarine Diamond Necklace
This is a lovely example of the delicacy of Edwardian design. A garland of diamonds and pearls anchors an estimated 1.5 carat gorgeous cushion cut aquamarine with an 8 mm diameter within silver-topped 14k rose gold ribbons of figure eight design.
The overlapping ribbons are set with thirty-five (35) rose cut accent diamonds (with an total estimated diamond weight of 30 points) interspersed with five luscious pearls (assumed natural but untested) between 3.5 – 4 mm. A fine link chain of 14k yellow gold set with one 5 mm pearl suspends the floating garland
Measurements: 16-11/16 inches (42.3 cm) in total length by 15/16 of an inch (2.4 cm) in diameter. Weight of 7.0 grams (4.5 dwt).
Date: Circa 1900
Overall Scale: Small
Note: All diamond and gemstone weights are approximate as the stones have not been removed in order to preserve the integrity of the setting.
