England, circa 1830 14K yellow gold, tested. 1 faceted cushion-cut aquamarine and 126 faceted pear-shaped aquamarines, altogether circa 50 carats, (calculated weight). 1 aquamarine is missing, 3 stones are minimally damaged. Signs of light restoration. Length circa. 43.3 cm. Circa 49.94 g. The Cannetille technique was developed in Central Europe around 1820, taking its name from an embroidery technique of the 1800s. A filigree framework of tendrils and arches made of fine gold wire is created, in which fine leaves, flowers and particularly beehive-like decorations are incorperated. This framework along with fine set gemstones are then further decorated with granulation. The present necklace perfectly reflects this extraordinary craftsmanship.
