Object Description

A striking and unusual platinum and diamond necklace by Van Cleef and Arpels c.1942, the articulated necklace made in platinum with a straight ribbon form and double domed profile, set across at regular intervals with sixty-three inlaid rows of transition cut diamonds, each row with three stones, the platinum with a brushed satin finish, all to a concealed tongue and box clasp. This lovely necklace measures 36cm/14.1” long so would have been worn across the throat in the style of a choker. An advertisement from 1943 shows a necklace like this being worn with a black dinner dress, the effect is modern and contemporary. The brushed platinum has a cool almost industrial feel to it and the contrast between the relatively matte metal and the sparkling diamonds is very effective.
