The sautoir necklace, a favorite of the 1920s was the perfect accessory for low-waisted dresses and became a symbol of the 'roaring twenties'. Long chains consisted of long strings of precious stone beads, diamond-set chains and as in the present case, intricately strung seed pearls.
This elegant seed pearl sautoir with diamond-set platinum fittings, suspends a pendant of Persian inspiration. It centers an articulated drop-shaped cultured pearl, set within a cartouche of calibré-cut sapphires accented by vari-shaped sapphire collets. The pendant is set throughout with transitional-cut diamonds, suspending a drop-shaped cabochon sapphire.
