One of the most popular jewelry motifs of the 19th century was the diamond-studded star - and not without reason. To a large extent, the enthusiasm for star motifs is owed to the Empress of Austria, who introduced the motif to Viennese society and made it immortal classics of jewelry history to this day. Probably the most famous portrait of Sisi, painted by Franz Xaver Winterhalter, shows the young empress with a multitude of radiant diamond stars in her flowing dark hair. The stars had been made especially for her by the Viennese court jeweler A.E. Köchert. After this portrait became known, there was no stopping the ladies of Viennese society: every woman who could afford it wanted to come into possession of at least one precious diamond-studded star. Such a piece from the end of the 19th century we have here before us. It is a six-pointed star, from which another six rays emanate, set with large diamonds. The center of the brooch is occupied by an old cut half carat, the surface is set with another 36 diamonds. In total, the diamonds of this brooch weigh about 3.59 carats. Since this piece comes from an era when white gold had not yet been invented and platinum was known but not yet satisfactorily processed, the diamonds here are set in gold. The brooch found its way to us from Munich. Today, as 140 years ago, the diamond star gives the greatest pleasure and waits for a wearer who will let it shine again!
