A CARTIER Art Deco exceptional diamond necklace

Photo by Bonhams
This is a very fine example of the purest Art Deco style executed by Cartier during the 1930's. Undoubtedly it will be the top hit at the next Bonhams Auction in Bond Street, London. The necklace contains 37 carats of white diamonds, set in a graduated geometrical design. A classic in terms of design and execution.

The image does no justice to this piece.The stones are very well matched as one should expect of a Cartier piece, specially the large central brilliant cut diamonds are of very fine quality. What makes the piece exceptional though, is the design of the many different motifs that hang articulated around the necklace. A great amount of work has been put in drawing each one of the different geometrical patterns that are executed to perfection.
