The 1960s were particularly experimental in the development of unusual jewellery designs. Always on the lookout for innovative means of expression, jewellery designers intensively explored the various currents of contemporary art. The goal was to create an independent abstract formal language of jewellery that would stand out from previous styles. Jewelry of this era explores the possibilities of the processed material and loves colour contrasts, interesting and unusual structures, daring volumes and expressive reliefs. This resulted in unique pieces of jewellery in which the traces of the manufacturing process were not hidden, but were to be confidently displayed as evidence of genuine craftsmanship. This expressive brooch is designed in the shape of a palm frond, set with ten fine diamonds of flawless quality and fine white colour, which in restrained white gold settings make the rich yellow gold of the brooch shine even brighter. This is a brooch that almost takes us to the Copa Cabana of those years with its confident design language: In our minds' eye we see elegant ladies with beehive hairstyles in front of us, in colourful dresses next to gentlemen in elegant evening suits, surrounded by Oscar Niemeyer's architectures. According to its hallmark, the brooch was made in Germany. Its design shows that the goldsmith who made it was well acquainted with the modern designs of the jewellery avant-garde of his time. Andrew Grima, for example, delighted his audience in London with similar designs in those years.
