While the Edwardian era was brief, this is when Cartier introduced the practice of using platinum for jewellery pieces. Less platinum needed, so this gave rise to the stones looking like they were floating on the wearer’s skin. This is a perfect example of that latest jewellry craze, still adored today.
An Edwardian necklace set with old brilliant-cut diamond foliate and cluster motifs joined together with fifteen graduated old brilliant-cut diamonds, the diamonds all millegrain rubover-set estimated to weigh a total of 12 carats, circa 1910, gross weight 20.88 grams, length 28 centimetres.
