Mirror up your neck now with Bonham’s beautiful necklaces…
Bonham’s is a privately owned British auction house and one of the world’s oldest and biggest auctioneers. What’s so great about them is they collect jewellery from all over the world, so every piece is a unique piece of artwork. We have looked through some of their wonderful necklaces to give you an idea of the type of things they auction.
This particular necklace is a glass, peridot, topaz mirror necklace, by Sah Oved. It is made up of circular mirrored plaques in closed-back collet settings, overlaid with a circular-cut paste, interchanging with smaller mirrored connections surmounted by cushion-shaped peridots, finishing at the front in a mixed-cut pink topaz, cushion-shaped peridot and mirrored paste fringe, mounted in silver and gold.
Another necklace which is beautiful with a lot of intricate work to it, is this rare gem-set gold Cruciform Pendant from Mughal India or Deccan, from the 17th Century. It’s made up of three perpendicular rectangular sections and a pointed section, all set with diamonds, centered on an oval medallion with a large central diamond within a band of cabochon rubies, the gold borders intricately engraved with a trailing foliate vine; the reverse engraved with lions and lionesses hunting gazelles, against a dense ground of fruit and flower-bearing foliage, and finally the bottom with an emerald bead suspension. Magnificent right!?
Lastly, this retro diamond, eighteen karat rose gold and platinum necklace of stylized fan motifs, is set with a round of single-cut diamonds, completed by a barrel-link chain, together with a pair of pendant earrings of matching design. How elegant!
