Art Deco Era Three Blossoms Carved Gemstone Brooch in 18k Gold & Platinum
* * SOLD * *
A beautiful Art Deco era brooch, modeled in 18k gold and platinum, whose three carved gemstone blossoms lay amid graceful, unfurling, diamond-set ribbons, and etched yellow gold leaves. These three flowers, one carnelian, one chrysoprase, and one chalcedony, each have a white diamond at their center. Three further tube-set diamonds accent the composition. The diamonds that adorn the brooches curling ribbons are bead set. These ribbons, and the little tube bezels, are all platinum-topped, and their edges are finished with a fine milgrain. Closure is a trombone clasp. This brooch is airy, romantic, and whimsical. It is imaginative, and its construction is especially fine! This would be lovely worn on a scarf or a lapel. We love seeing men in brooches, and we think this one is well suited to all genders.
Flowers are intact with no losses.
