962: Tiffany & Co. Necklace, Ladies 18k Gold, Diamonds
Tiffany & Co. ladies 18k yellow gold and diamond necklace, France, bark textured graduated links of 18k yellow gold, 37 evenly spaced brilliant-cut diamonds set in four-prong platinum heads, diamonds are .06ct to 0.17ct estimated weight each, and are VVS clarity, F-G color, total estimated diamond weight is 4.25ct., tongue-style clasp with hidden safety, marked "4184C FRANCE Tiffany", 17" long, 7-10.30mm wide, very good original condition
The tongue style clasp is a bit bent and does not provide the necessary tension. The safety is in good working order. Very slight bend so that the last link with diamond at the right does not lay perfectly. A small adjustment by a jeweler may be needed. No loose or missing stones. Includes presentation box and an appraisal by Anton Nash, LLC in Colorado, placing the April 2010 retail replacement value at $26,885.
