The bib necklace has withstood the test of time, remaining popular throughout history and still prevalent today. The form dates back to Ancient Egypt, revived in numerous variations throughout the last 100 years. This lyrical Diamond Bib Necklace, made in the 21st century, circa 2010s, is exceptionally designed and constructed with a uniquely configured double row of sparkling diamond clusters—composed in alternating motifs and alternating metals that are festooned five times in graduated swoops. The festoons compose the characteristic bib of the necklace which is wider at the front and tapered at the back around the neck. Crafted in 18K white and yellow gold, the necklace features alternating flower and leaf motifs set with diamonds with an estimated total weight of 13.00 carats. The diamonds are not certified and are equivalent to G-H color and VS-SI clarity. The weight of the necklace is 44.27 grams.

Typically a bib necklace makes a bold statement with an arrangement of materials that constitute a broad breastplate or front section. This variation on a theme is, by contrast, delicate, light, and open, like the subject matter it depicts. More to the point, the form of this necklace is reminiscent of an Edwardian garland necklace, composed of draping foliate motifs and sparkling swags. Oriented in all the same direction, the double leaf motif in 18K yellow gold features two marquise-shaped bezels arranged in a V shape and set with two round diamonds held with delicate prongs. These leaves are so sweet and dainty, yet at the same time, the overall pointed arrow shape leads the eye around the composition. The leaves frame the floral motif which is crafted in contrasting 18K white gold featuring 4 round diamonds held with delicate prongs in a cluster setting. The two motifs are in perfect harmony and relate so well because they both employ the marquise shape, also known as a navette or pointed oval.

There is so much sparkle from these dainty stones owing to the superior craftsmanship of the settings. The settings are open on the back and have some cutouts on the sides as well. An open-back setting is specifically designed to allow light to pass through the setting and into the gem. This is especially important for transparent or translucent gems like diamonds that can refract light and sparkle brighter. Truly a delicate treasure that would enliven any special occasion.

Diamond weight approx. 13.00 carats total, estimated G-H colors, VS-SI clarity. Overall weight approx. 44.27 grams, made in 18k white and yellow gold. Circa 2010s.
