Culturally, the emerald has been associated with the circle of hope, youth and new beginnings since ancient times: For its strong green colour reminded even the ancient Romans of spring and the sprouting of plants. There could hardly be a more fitting gemstone to capture the spirit of optimism of Art Deco, that fast-moving and innovative period between the wars. So modern were the jewellery designs of those years that they still seem timeless to us today. A large emerald of 5.75 ct is the protagonist of the jewellery piece here, which characteristically showcases the design language of those years. The emerald is set in platinum and glows with almost unreal intensity. The fact that the stone comes from Colombia, which has always been the origin of the best emeralds, is not surprising. Moreover, it is particularly beautiful that the large stone is especially clear and shows only a slight so-called "jardin". The surface of the abstractly shaped pendant framing the emerald is set by a total of 4.90 ct diamonds: Large historic old European cut diamonds and of fine white colour. A series of geometric cuts such as baguette, carré and trapezoid vertically interrupt the field set by old cuts, creating a sophisticated contrast of light refractions. The jewel can be worn as a pendant and also as a brooch: if the latter is desired, the pendant eylet simply folds in. However, these functions were given to it only later, because once the piece of jewellery was a so-called dress clip, a typical form of the Art Deco, which was clipped to the neckline, the lapel or the belt. Only in recent times, the former clip was reworked for the purpose of wearability. The piece of jewellery is excellently preserved. We were able to discover it him Vienna and have specially commissioned an independent appraisal, which evaluates the quality of the materials used. It is delivered with the piece.
