Glamorous Clip Brooch with Aquamarine & Diamonds in Platinum, 1940s

The design language of the 1940s was chic and sophisticated, asymmetrical and expansive. Particularly popular were elongated elements that looked like folded, draped lengths of fabric. They formed abstract brooches, earrings and necklaces. A special form of jewellery of those years was the clip for the fur coat. The double pin held the large brooch firmly to the coat without tipping. Such a clip brooch is also present here: It is designed as a dynamic swirl, richly decorated and reminiscent of shiny fabric panels. The brooch is asymmetrically designed and shines and sparkles richly in the light of its countless gemstones. In addition to a large, round-cut aquamarine, 132 diamonds in various cuts are gathered here. In addition to diamonds in transitional cuts, old cuts and 8/8 cuts are also set. As is so often the case with jewellery from the war and immediate post-war period, diamonds from older jewellery and stock seem to have been used. Despite the scarcity of materials, glamorous jewels in the latest shapes could thus be created. The clip brooch is excellently preserved. With its double pin, it is ideal for tight winter coats, capes or thick scarves.
