Emerald and Diamond Cluster Necklace
This regal necklace dates from the early to mid-19th century, when jewelers encircled precious colored stones in halos of fiery old mine-cut diamonds to create stunning jewels for glamorous occasions. The contrast of the emerald’s satin green with the sparkling reflections and spectral effects of the hand-cut, collet-set diamonds makes for a visually fascinating combination in clusters. Set in perfectly proportioned links, this superbly crafted necklace is a rare, beautifully-matched collection of emeralds and diamonds that ornament the neckline.
