A platinum oval carved coral and diamond (0.45ct) pendant from the Art Deco period. Vibrant red coral from the Mediterranean Sea has been expertly carved with a high relief display of flowers and foliage. This has been secured in a polished platinum setting, and accented by an eye-catching, stylised, pierced platinum, brilliant diamond set lotus flower. The hard skeleton of coral featured prominently in Art Deco jewellery, and was either elaborately carved or polished into beads. The Duchess of Windsor (1896-1986) owned a red coral bead choker necklace that was made for her by Cartier in the 1940s. Used in jewellery since ancient times, coral has a rich symbolism attached to it, and is believed to bring good luck. As such, during Victorian and Edwardian times, children often wore coral bead necklaces. A particularly prominent example can be seen in a 1927 photograph of Princess Elizabeth of York.
Coral is an inherently soft, natural material and this ornate engraving shows excellent skill and patience to achieve such a delicate design.
Taking its influences from places like India and Egypt, Art Deco jewellery often featured unorthodox combinations of natural materials, such as onyx, emeralds, rubies and jade.
