A Lalique piece coming up for auction.
Its a circa 1890 crafted necklace/choker.
Interesting to see the craftsmanship on the round Diamond located as center piece.

Thanks for sharing a unique and beautiful piece of history and jewelry. But why is the metal black?

My guess is that the diamonds are set in silver that has oxidized.

I love diamonds in oxidized gold or platinum. It totally shows off the white stones. An eternity band with oxidized platinum or white told is on my list.
