This piece looks modern and elegant today and it was made in 1910. It must have been extremely unusual for its time. During the Belle Epoque motifs were mainly floral inspirations after the garland style and this choker necklace is designed in a strict geometrical pattern set in diamonds over a black velvet band. A dramatic piece both now and a 100 years ago made by no other than Cartier.

 

It will be auctioned by Christie's London on June 13th.

This ended up going for $32k. Not what I imagined.
