Antique brooch in gold, platinum & diamonds, Germany circa 1910
The brooch, a classic stick pin, takes us back to the beginning of the 20th century. The years of the Belle Époque were an era full of luxury, joie de vivre and celebration of beauty. The world's most beautiful dancers danced at the Moulin Rouge in Paris, the society couples in love met on the Ringstrasse in Vienna, and the ladies' gowns and diamonds shone brightly at the balls in the elegant hotels on Unter den Linden in Berlin. In the centre of a row of sparkling diamonds, which slowly grows larger towards the middle, shines a beautiful old-cut diamond of about 0.50 carat. Delicate mille griffons stud the platinum edges and finish off the composition on the sides. In doing so, they further refract the light. The brooch is crafted of 14-karat gold with a blanket of platinum to show off the bright play of colors in the diamond setting to its best advantage. The workmanship and choice of materials of the very well preserved bar pin allow us to date it to the years around 1910. Numerous narrow pieces of jewellery with reduced shapes were created at this time, which were set with ever new combinations of precious materials. The brooch, about 6.6 cm long, came to us from Central Germany and is wonderfully preserved.
