Sapphire and Diamond Draped Necklace
This gorgeous mid-century sapphire and diamond necklace unites playful motifs with serious gems. Its rich deep blue sapphires, draping softly across the neckline under their own weight, alternate with bold diamond buckles and curly volutes (referred to whimsically in French as “copeaux,” or wood shavings). With its classic and crisp gem palette of blue and white, set in gleaming platinum, this dynamic design makes a perfect pairing with a gown for a celebratory occasion.
