The dream of happiness

Elegant Art Deco stick pin with diamonds & pearls, around 1930

In the short years of peace between the First and Second World Wars, jewellery of cool elegance and the greatest luxury emerged in Europe and the world. Intoxicated by the speed of the new automobiles, delighted by the sparkle of champagne and still giddy from the view of the new skyscrapers, a very unique design language emerged in bright colors, shiny metal and richly set with sparkling gemstones. This brooch from around 1930 speaks this language: The brooch is made of yellow gold with a front of light platinum. The design, which ends each side with an elegant flower ornament, reveals a delicate play of light and shadow in the electric light. A large old-cut diamond flanked by two shimmering saltwater pearls is set in the center as an eye-catcher. The exquisite materials of the brooch exude an ethereal sparkle that combines beautifully with the cool luster of platinum. The result is an exemplary white jewel - a richly appointed bar pin in the finest condition and workmanship.
