The pleasures of Portugal

Exciting amethyst & pearl pendant brooch from Portugal, circa 1960

The floral shapes of this brooch, which can also be worn as a pendant thanks to a concealed eyelet, wind into a large design in splendid colours. In the centre of the pendant, two baguette-cut amethysts present a calm centre to the playful frame with their clear and austere shape and expressive colour. Numerous pearls and a large drop pearl, together with diamonds in silver settings, set small highlights in the warmly glowing gold. The vintage brooch in high-carat gold enchants at first sight and transports us to a fashion reminiscent of the years around 1900. The Art Nouveau style, which came from France, took the metropolises of the world and the hearts of ladies by storm. A first-class piece of jewellery of the years around 1960 with summery beautiful colours.
