Edwardian Diamond Ruby Necklace Gold Platinum

She sat at a small table, set for one, on the edge of a dimly lit restaurant. Her dress was long, her hair was up, and her slender fingers held onto her crystal water glass. She read from a small book, by candlelight, as she waited for her entrée to arrive. She was still, and yet the diamonds on her necklace appeared to move. Silently, they constantly glistened, radiating with the colors of a sunrise. As the candle’s flame rocked back and forth the light from the diamonds danced across her face, and reflected on the lenses of her thick rimmed glasses, making her glow.

This eternally glittering diamond and ruby necklace was handcrafted in England, around 1915. It features approximately 130 magnificently sparkling white rose diamonds that surround 16 deep-pink marquis-cut rubies, giving the drop the look of a glittering stained glass window;  like rose-colored stars in a diamond filled night sky. This necklace is made in 18 karat gold and platinum. It is marked with the gold purity content mark, ‘750’, on the clasp, and has been acid tested. This necklace is 16 inches in length with the main pendant feature measuring 42.3 x 28.5 x 2 mm.  It weighs 52.9 grams.

The box this antique necklace comes in bears an inside inscription. When opened it reveals the words “ESTD. 1868 Diamond Merchants H. & A. Kimbell and Goldsmiths 182 Aldersgate Street E.C.” I am not entirely certain that this is the original box for this necklace, although it well may be.

This delicate accessory is a divine work of art, it’s versatile, too, and will go perfectly with everything from faded jeans to evenings gowns.
