Multi-Cut Diamond Tassel Collar Necklace


Created in the late Art Deco period, this finely articulated, platinum pierce-work collar necklace is set with over seventeen carats of round and fancy-cut diamonds. The subtly-tapering form centers flexible tassels accented by half-moon-, baguette-, bullet-, and marquise-cut diamonds, and is highlighted by circular and rectangular buckle motifs, and a conforming clasp. A delicate jewel, nonetheless with strong Art Deco design, this elegant necklace brings grace and sparkling radiance to the face.
