Stomacher Bandeau platinum canvas studded with circular-cut diamonds

The tapering articulated band designed as embroidered fabric, decorated with a pattern of foliate scrolls, like Petit point, also known as Tent stitch,( is a small embroidery stitch that is worked diagonally across the intersection of one horizontal and one vertical) in an exclusiv way, set with old European-cut diamonds against a transparent web of 'threads', length 11 inches, numbered 6218, center portion may be worn as a bracelet, the two end segments detach to be worn together as a brooch, brooch fitting deficient.

The diamond bandeau is defined by Hans Nadelhoffer in his book Cartier: Jewelers Extraordinary as "a ribbon-shaped tiara whose centre is not accentuated ... the most timeless form of head ornament ... a clear idea of what the tiara must have looked like in early civilizations, when it was still worn as a headband." Like all well-made jewelry of the period, the present bandeau is "multi-purpose."
The two shield-shaped ends can detach allowing the central portion to be worn as a bracelet. Joined together, the ends form an elegant brooch though the brooch pin is currently deficient.

Nancy Leeds, later Princess Anastasia of Greece. Nancy Leeds, was born Nonnie May Stewart in Cleveland, Ohio. After a brief first marriage, she married William Bateman Leeds, a tin millionaire, who died in 1908. A beautiful widow with a sizeable fortune, Nancy purchased the platinum canvas studded with circular-cut diamonds bandeau from Cartier in 1912. In the book Cartier, the author Hans Nadelhoffer mentions Mrs. Leeds as one of Cartier's most loyal customers prior to the onset of the first World War.

The legal complications resulting from her previous marriages caused a six year delay of the wedding; the marriage finally took place in Vevey, Switzerland in January of 1920.

Rue de la Paix , the street occupied by the top purveyors of fashion in Paris, led by the fashion house of Worth. They profited by their close proximity to each other, all catering to an international clientele "prepared to pay the same prices for clothes as for works of art and who wished to complement their wardrobes with matching jewelry."
Cartier moved to Rue de la Paix in 1899 to capitalize on the booming economic climate, instate of turn of the century following the industrial revolution and preceding World War I was a period of heretofore unprecedented economic growth, this positioning provided Cartier with the "creative incentive" to make the acquisition of the appropriate jewel a necessary fashion accessory.
To that end, using his "intimate knowledge of Worth's fashions and textiles, fabrics and embroidery in general," Cartier created in 1912, the lot offered here, a jewel where platinum threads formed a grid of "fabric" onto which diamond tendrils were "embroidered." This technique of "platinum embroidery" originated by Cartier was used in 1914 by Faberge in his "Mosaic Egg" and utilized by another Parisian jeweler, LaCloche, in 1925.
