Edwardian Platinum Diamond & Opal Necklace/Bracelet Set
A beautiful and unusual necklace and bracelet set from the Edwardian (ca1910) era! Made of platinum, this wonderful piece is comprised of delicate white opal beads to create a chain, and Old European cut diamonds set within a gorgeous centerpiece. The piece has an elegant design that can be worn in two equally lovely ways. When left as a long strand, it can be worn as a single 21" necklace, or detached in two places to form a shorter 14" choker and separate bracelet. Two 14kt white gold spring ring clasps fasten at either side of the necklace, serving as the connectors to make the piece adjustable. When detached, the choker length necklace and bracelet each fasten with their own spring ring clasp. The necklace's diamond centerpiece is stunning, formed by three open circles that rest inside one another, accented with a five bezel set diamonds and platinum leaf details. The bracelet features a single bezel set diamond resting in the middle, accented by a swirled platinum link at either side. The white opals that form the beaded strands are lovely, with a milky blueish white hue and slight translucent quality. A very unique and versatile piece, it looks incredible no matter which way it is worn, and would make a special addition to any collection!
Measurements: When worn as one longer necklace, the piece measures approximately 21" long. When detached, the choker necklace measures approximately 14" long, and the bracelet measures 6.5" long. The beaded opal strands are approximately 1/4" wide, with each opal measuring 2mm in size. The larger diamond centerpiece has a 5/8" diameter.
Condition: The overall condition of the piece is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the platinum setting, or to any of the opal beads or diamonds, all of which are intact. The spring ring clasps are both secure an in good working condition.
