Filigree Finery

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling and Lacy Things

Lately, it’s been the kind of weather made for dressing in layers.  My grandma would have told me to wear a sweater, and she would’ve been right….  a long, cozy one that you can wrap up in.  The kind of sweater that’s light enough to wear under your coat, but still takes the chill out of the morning air.  It doubles as a jacket when the afternoon sun comes out.  I’m a long cardigan kinda girl – paired with black leggings…  what could be better?  This week’s necklace is the absolute perfect accessory.  

Made from 10-karat white gold, this is filigree at its finest.  All original, the pendant is suspended from a “Y” chain.  The portion that goes around the neck measures 20 inches with a center drop that extends another 2 inches.  It’s a repeating pattern of one long open link then three tiny round links, the style is both delicate and durable (evident by the age of the piece – a true antique at 100 years old).   

Dangling from the end of the chain is a lovely navette shaped pendant – the elongated silhouette adds yet another two inches to this Art Deco beauty.  Like fine lace, this interlocking wire-work is crafted in intricate patterns that are accented by beaded milgrain edges and a small engraved border.  Adding the slightest pop of color are a pair of kite-shaped synthetic blue sapphires.  They are seated above and below the center which is marked by a singular round diamond in a square setting.  There are two additional diamonds in the necklace – a marquise in the bail of the pendant and another round diamond at the juncture of the Y.  The diamond weight is minimal…  just .07 carat total.  

This 1920’s necklace offers filigree that doesn’t feel fancy.  It’s comfortable and easy to wear.  Pair it with your favorite cardigan for effortless style.  Find it on our website for just $1,375.00.
