platinum and old european cut diamond 17" chain necklace


The Story

A lovely vintage platinum chain necklace made in the early-to-mid 20th century.  The chain features seven Old European Cut diamonds graduating in size from the center.  The largest is at center and weighs 0.12 carats then tapers up the chain and ends with diamonds weighing 0.05 carats for a total diamond weight of approximately 0.46 carats.  The diamonds are bezel set and give off the most lovely vintage cut sparkle.  They look great alternating with the open platinum chain links.  

At 17 inches in length, it hits at a great spot on the chest.  We love it on its own or worn layered with other favorite chains, necklaces, and pendants.  It's a great "diamonds by the yard" jewelry staple.
