Positively elegant, what gloriously locks aren't enhanced by a diamond barrette?
French in origin and fashioned in sliver and 18k gold, the lines are pure and classic. An elongated infinity loop with a circle intersecting both at the center, holds a balanced geometry.
What workmanship and skill it took set to 210 rose cut diamonds in a linear area on the 1.8 mm thick! Glittering like minute points of light, they total 2.00 carats.
Their colors range from misty gray to several in the pink range, although those tones can only be seen with very close inspection or powerful magnification.
Circa 1900, this Belle Époque jewel for the hair remains in remarkable condition.
