A magnificent necklace. Emeralds are a verdant, romantic jewel, closely associated with Venus in classical mythology. This shimmering necklace features fourteen exquisite emeralds, each set in a lovely frame of twinkling diamonds. This necklace, created in the mid-nineteenth century, is reminiscent of the old-Hollywood glamour of a bygone era. Because of the delicate platinum work, the emeralds and diamonds appear to float on the wearer’s neck, exuding hypnotic beauty.
