Onyx Onyx is a variety of chalcedony. The use of onyx in jewelry dates back to biblical times, described as part of the jeweled breastplate worn by Aaron as well as in the works of Pliny the Elder in the first century.

Single Cut Single cut diamonds, also called melee, are round brilliant cuts that feature fewer than the standard number of facets, typically 16-18 facets instead of the standard 57 to 58. Diamonds of smaller sizes can be cut as single cuts because having fewer facets doesn’t noticeably affect the diamond’s appearance.

White Gold White Gold use in jewelry is first associated with Art Deco, as yellow gold was out of fashion and it is an alternative to platinum, which had become increasingly more expensive after 1915. 18K gold is softer than platinum but has more than enough strength for everyday wear in fine jewelry, particularly in earrings, bracelets and necklaces.

Art Deco The name is a shortening of the Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industrials Modernes, held in Paris in 1925, used to represent the period from the 1920s to the 1930s. Art Deco jewelry style, in following with the rise of the machine age, emphasizes symmetry and geometry in design, typically with simple, repeated geometric patterns. In additional to natural pearl, the typical stone use in jewelry of this period is diamond, onyx, sapphire, emerald and coral, cut into geometric shapes reflecting advances in cutting. Cartier in France is a leading house of the period, and American houses including Tiffany and Company also produced exceptional pieces during this era.

Unique Elements
This necklace is an excellent example of the repetition of geometric shapes and use of diamond, white gold and onyx that typify Art Deco. We love the clean lines and sparkle of the diamonds against the shine of the black onyx. This necklace would be equally great with a crisp white collared shirt or a strapless black gown.
