Cloisonné Bead and Pearl Gilded Necklace from The Met Museum


This elegant necklace features twisted freshwater pearls and enamel beads, accented with 14K gold plate. The richly patterned cloisonné beads celebrate varied and beautiful Japanese textiles collected by Edward C. Moore (1827-1891), the creative force who led Tiffany & Co. to unparalleled originality and success during the second half of the 19th century. Now in The Met collection, such dazzling fabrics illustrate the extraordinary quality of Japanese patterned and embroidered silks from the 17th though the 19th century.
