Description This necklace is a splendid example of Tiffany & Co.'s jewelry production around the turn of the 20th century, when the company was famous for its lavish use of diamonds. Composed of stylized fleurs-de-lys and rosettes, this necklace recalls the diamond jewelry of the 18th century. There are 265 diamonds set in a gold mounting faced with platinum.
