The turn of the 20th Century saw an evolution in jewelry design with the introduction of platinum filigree. The strength of platinum lent itself perfectly to new openwork designs in which negative space was as important as the cut work and engraving. This pendant is a fine example of the style, enhanced with 4.37tcw of dazzling diamonds. A cut-corner rectangular plaque of platinum filigree is set at its heart with twin old European cut diamonds in hexagonal heads. Twenty old European cut diamonds are bead set into the border of the plaque. The decorative hinged bale is designed to integrate perfectly with the pendant; it is gracefully arched at the top and set with seven little accent diamonds. Exquisite milgrain engraving frosts the filigree, creating an icy glitter. This exceptional piece hangs on a modern cable chain of recycled platinum. Circa 1910.
