French Mid-20th Century Diamond, Sapphire and Platinum Necklace

A French Mid-20th Century platinum necklace with sapphires and diamonds. The center of the necklace has 4 graduated festooned strands of 162 round and oval-cut sapphires with an approximate total weight of 25.00 carats that form the articulated swag. The blue sapphires are most likely from Ceylon. The top strand and side decoration have 153 baguette diamonds with an approximate total weight of 9.00 carats, and 104 round-cut diamonds with an approximate total weight of 14.40 carats, G/H color, VS clarity. French control mark for platinum. The motifs of 1950's jewelry design may appear similar to pieces produced in the '40's, but they were executed in an entirely different way. Retro jewelry had a solid, heavy and highly polished look whereas 1950's jewelry was open, airy and textural, although still solid and "important" in appearance. There was beautiful movement and a depth displayed in the execution of design in this period, as this swag designed necklace exemplifies.

Circa: 1950's
Dimensions: 14-1/2" length, with later 2" extension x 1-5/8" width at the center of the draping.
