The high style of the Edwardian period in the early 20th century is hallmarked by the use of platinum and diamonds or with pearls. The white on white neutral palette was considered the height of refined grandeur.
Think of socialites dripping with choker upon choker of diamonds and pearls and layers of bracelets up the arm.
Taking inspiration from that vogue, this openwork platinum filigree pendant draws on the marquise shape for its overall form. Add to the mix 2.26 carats of diamonds and a lustrous gray baroque cultured freshwater pearl of about 11 mm and the outcome is non-stop shimmer.
From the oval rose cut diamond studded platinum bale (top ring) to the delicate use of brilliant cuts, the outer perimeter with its slight scallop shape proves irresistible. Every twist and turn reveals surfaces encrusted with diamonds.
