I love the simple geometry of this Y-shaped Edwardian diamond necklet.

The understated design lends itself to being worn day and night.

Delicate collets of 15-carat gold topped with platinum form a series of circles, joined by a platinum chain.

Fine millegraining around each old cut diamond adds to the overall prettiness. Please view the video to see their sparkle, and note that one of the stones is warm – even chocolaty – in tone.

This lovely necklace would look best sitting at the nape of the neck.

I’d be delighted to have it shortened to the length right for you, at no extra cost.
