"The new woman" was the ideal of the 1920s and early 1930s. She had won the right to vote, was self-confident in professional and love matters, part of the nightlife of the Weimar Republic - things that still seemed unimaginable at the beginning of the century. The fact that a new self-image could also be translated into aesthetics, indeed that it virtually required a new aesthetic, is attested to by articles in influential German fashion journals such as Die Dame. The women portrayed there wore bobbed heads and strikingly made-up lips, loosely cut dresses - and yet the most influential among them were not simply style icons, but active as authors and artists. That the jewellery of the Belle Époque, floral and playful, was reminiscent of the time before the war, of a different social order, is self-explanatory. The jewellery of the new woman deliberately set herself apart from this: Clear-lined and geometric, it deliberately eschewed anything cloying. It was a linear, often emphatically austere elegance that characterized the most modern jewellery of the time. One such modern piece of jewellery is the brooch here - or as it was called in jewellery catalogues of the time, a broochette. Rectangular and horizontally oriented, it may recall the stick pins of previous decades, but it is wide enough to accommodate contemporary geometric decoration. Exquisitely executed saw work and mille handles structure the piece of jewellery, which is typically crafted in platinum on white gold. Set all over with diamonds, the three central diamonds are highlighted by shadow gaps. Four narrow bands of black enamel provide sharp contrasts.
