The pendant is detachable from the twisted design and barrel-shaped links of the necklace. Henri Picq's workshop, located in the Marais district of Paris, was one of the most important workshops in Paris from the early 20thCentury through the late 1920's. He produced some of the highest quality gem-set platinum jewels of the period. Among other houses, Picq worked for Cartier, becoming their main supplier between 1900 and 1918. These jewels were said to be the finest in Paris, and it was the workshop of Henri Picq that became famed for the quality of this jewelry. Picq was instrumental in the use of novel materials and executed some of Cartier's most avant-gard designs, especially the beautifully-produced Cartier 'Tutti Frutti' jewels, described at the time as 'pierres de couleur' and which continue to endure. He also produced a bracelet designed and exhibited at the revolutionary Paris Exposition Universelle in 1925.

Chaumet Paris Belle Epoque Diamond and Platinum Festoon Necklace

A French Belle Epoque platinum-topped gold necklace with diamonds by Chaumet. The necklace has old European-cut diamonds with an approximate total weight of 68 carats, H-I-J color, VS/SI clarity. The necklace is designed as a graduated double festoon. The center stone weighs approximately 2.50 carats, with the remaining stones graduating to .20 carat. The house of Chaumet was founded in 1780 by Marie-Etiene Nitot as Nitot et fils. Nitot had begun his career working with Auber, jeweler to Queen Marie-Antoinette. An aristocratic clientele was soon to follow him to his new workshop. A reputation as the "jeweler of the tiara" was earned in those early commissions when Nitot created the coronation crown for Napoleon. Napoleon wanted to make his family transcendent and saw jewels as the true symbol of power to be used in displaying his kingly authority. Empress Josephine appeared at the coronation resplendent in a tiara created for her by Nitot, and so it began. A similar festoon necklace is pictured in Chaumet Paris, by Roselyne Hurel and Diana Scarisbrick, Paris musées, 1998, page 95, Plate 128.

Victorian Gold Acrostic Necklace.

An English Victorian 18 karat gold acrostic necklace. The heart charms consist of 161 rose-cut diamonds that have the approximate total weight of 3.20 carats. The center of these charms have 2 emeralds, with amethyst, ruby, sapphire and topaz that have the approximate total weight of .90 carat. Acrostic jewelry, which was immensely popular in the highly sentimental Victorian era, was actually originally introduced to the popular market by the famed French house of Mellerio, who created acrostic jewels for Marie Antoinette. A piece of acrostic jewelry is a piece that includes a series of center stones whose first letter of their common names spells out a word of affection. For example, this necklace, whose charms feature center stones of Diamond, Emerald, Amethyst, Ruby, Emerald (again), Sapphire and Topaz in that order is meant to say "DEAREST." Each of the heart-shaped charms in this particular piece features not only the meaning-filled center stone but also several carats worth of rose-cut diamonds, that encrust their faces.

Circa: 1860s
Dimensions: Necklace 15" length; each charm 1/2" x 1/2".
