Antique jewellery forms were revived several times in the course of the 20th century. The 1980s in particular saw a return to models from the supposedly good old days. Antiques were in demand as never before and belonged as a badge of good taste in the stylish home of the decade. Not only were old pieces of jewellery worn again, but new creations were also created in the spirit of the past. This piece of jewellery, which can be worn both as a brooch and as a pendant, is a typical representative of this fashion. It shows itself as an elaborate creation in the centre of which a finely cut shell cameo draws the eye. There, a finely dressed lady with hat and umbrella stands on a bridge and gazes into the romantic landscape. A wreath of delicate gold bars studded with shimmering pearls frames the oval cameo. The cameo is suspended below a graceful bow ornament, which is set with a green emerald and glittering diamond roses. The representation of the cameo as well as the design of the whole piece of jewellery refer to the time of the turn of the last century, the Belle Époque. Large bust and waist jewels were en vogue at this time and were worn on the elegant large dresses like that of the lady on the cameo itself. Excellently crafted and made of selected noble materials, this Italian-made piece of jewellery is a playful eye-catcher from the 80s with a nostalgic touch.
