£8,000 Regular price

Jewellery Sector: Fine & High Jewellery

Curated By: Josephine Odet

Main Material: Silver

Period: 1910s

Condition Report: Very good condition

Sold
A very fine Belle Époque opal, diamond and ruby lavalier pendant. Set with old circular-cut diamonds throughout and in the centre with a rectangular opal plaque surmounted with a circular-cut ruby. The mount, designed as a series of interconnected scrolls, terminates in two pear-shaped diamond drops suspended on a silver-on-gold chain.

The ornate decorative motifs of Louis XIV’s reign were embraced by Belle Époque designers. Swag or garland necklaces strung with pear-shaped pearls and diamond bows were typical. Dog collar necklaces of black velvet were also popular fixed with large diamond clasps. Like 17th century France, the early 20th century was an era of opulence with new found industrial wealth from America marrying British aristocracy. The nostalgic aesthetic was embraced as a way to set new money in the security of the past.
