Vintage Cartier ‘Inde Mysterieuse’ Diamond NecklaceSKU: 7061725
A visually staggering vintage Cartier ‘Inde Mysterieuse’ diamond drop necklace set in platinum.
From the now discontinued Cartier ‘Inde Mysterieuse’ collection, the piece is composed of five diamond set strands. The diamonds are each encased in a platinum rub-over setting and connected together by delicate polished bars. Pear shaped drops are scattered amongst the strands creating this beautiful twinkle effect. The necklace is secure to reverse with a push clasp and safety catch.
Once on the necklace truly comes to life! The drops on each strand are articulated meaning that they can move freely on the wearers neck. This means the necklace constantly sparkles from all angles making it a true showstopper. The collection ‘Inde Mysterieuse’ translates from French to English as ‘Mysterious India’ which plays homage to Cartier’s rich heritage and ties with India in the early 1940’s!
There is a staggering total of 379 round brilliant cut diamonds within the piece, having a total weight of 20.19 carats. These diamonds are of the finest quality, ranging F-G in colour with VVS clarity. For size reference the necklace measures 42 centimetres in length) but it can be lengthened upon request. There is a gross weight of 66.8 grams.
The necklace is signed and hallmarked on the clasp Cartier, PT950, with the serial number 13581C. The necklace is accompanied by the original Cartier box but no papers. It is however accompanied by a complimentary valuation for insurance and authenticity and the original Cartier book showing the necklace design collection.
