This two-piece set of 14 carat yellow gold is comprised of a large pendant on a necklace, as well as a link bracelet. The wonderful set shows beautiful gemstones and the pure style of the late Art Deco period!
The pendant has a large emerald-cut aquamarine in the middle with approx. 8 carat weight. It is enclosed at the top and bottom by a white gold band with nine diamonds altogether, with an overall weight of approx. 0.12 carat. The band joins the yellow gold framing which is shaped like a knot at the top. The bracelet is comprised of links which are composed of octagon-cut aquamarines with approx. 2 carat weight each and yellow gold elements in a double knot shape. The yellow gold elements showcase the high-quality workmanship, whereby the colour and special characteristics of the aquamarines are emphasised by the cut and the colour contrast of the yellow and white gold with the diamonds.
