Clustered Diamond Silver-Topped Necklace


Dating from the late 19th century, this antique Victorian diamond necklace is light and beautifully modeled to sit comfortably across the neckline. Its clustered diamond blossom motifs and ruffled, trailing vines express the Late Romantic era’s love of nature, while looking ahead to Edwardian delicacy. The collet- and star-set hand-cut diamonds are offset by the rich patina of the silver-topped gold, showcasing the stones’ brilliance and fire.
