The Victoria & Albert Museum
This platinum and enameled gold pendant is set with brilliant-cut diamonds, carved sapphires, stained chalcedony and jadeite. Hung from a ribbon, it dances as the wearer moves, catching the light. The pendant is attributed to Parisian jeweler Janesich.
Janesich created a masterful work in a combination of styles—capitalizing on the icy contrast of gemstones which had become popular in the mid 1920s, but also incorporating the ideals of past ages with the florid folliage.
