Symphony of the Big City

Powerful Brooch in Platinum & 2.01 ct Diamonds, Art Deco Circa 1930

Of all the types of jewellery, the brooch is probably the piece that gives the designer the greatest freedom. Hardly any consideration has to be given to wearability here, quite unlike the ring, for example. There are no limits to shape, size and colour. No wonder that so many great jewellery designers such as René Lalique or Jean Schlumberger have become famous for their brooches. Here we have a special feast for the eyes, which takes us right into the middle of the upheaval years of the still young 20th century. We see a set form of diamonds, set in fine platinum. The shape is an elongated oval in which a bar, similar to a buckle, is set. It looks as if a glittering ribbon is wrapped around this central shape. Perhaps the designer was indeed inspired by the precious rococo buckles - an epoch that was indeed often the inspiration for many designs during the Art Deco period. The design of the brooch is nevertheless clear and powerful, precise and full of brilliance. The brooch is set with a total of 69 diamonds, which closely cover the surface of the design; their total weight is around 2.01 ct. A particularly large old European cut diamond forms the radiant center of the brooch.
