A glamorous mid-century statement necklace with a repeating oval design. A combination of circular and baguette cut diamond set in platinum in a repeating oval design.
The mid-20th Century includes two decades of intense stylistic shifts in jewellery. In 1947 Christian Dior’s revealed his revolutionary, ‘New Look’. It marked a shift in fashion from the short straight skirts and stiff jackets with high necks and broad shoulder-padded of war-time austerity. Necklines lowered and sleeves disappeared with full skirted, off-the-shoulder dresses perfect for elaborate collar-length bib necklaces and broad bracelets to be shown off during the 1950s.
