In the early 20th century, under the design direction of Louis Cartier, the firm strongly acknowledged jewelry's deep connection to the evolution of couture. Cartier's designs often playfully derived motifs from the French artisanal expertise in textiles, fabrics and "passementerie", or trimmings. Here this elegant tassel necklace formed of diamonds and gold wittily evokes an attractively soft and casual scarf or collar.
