Vintage brooch with aquamarine & diamonds in white gold, 1960s

A glamorous sight is offered by the vintage brooch here. A large, faceted aquamarine weighing approximately fifteen carats and beautiful light blue in color forms the focal point of the design. Fifty glittering diamonds accompany the blue gemstone, as if washed up by gentle ocean waves. They are set in elegantly curved white gold bars. Six individually set diamonds act like sea spray, playfully propelling the aquamarine ashore. The elegant color scheme of blue and white reveals the brooch's period of origin in the 1960s. After the organic shapes of the fifties, a new taste for geometry returned in the age of the race to the moon. Rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings - the colour of the day was again white, like the stars, often combined with blue, like the night sky. Occasionally, other coloured stones in primary colours are found alongside sapphires, but it is the cool sparkle of diamonds, combined with white gold, that is the main attraction of the jewellery of this period. The brooch gathers diamonds of about 0.80 ct together at every possible point on the show side, so that every movement of its wearer makes it shine with new brilliance. The light blue aquamarine, the high karat white gold and the diamonds also complement each other in effect, creating an ethereally bright dichotomy. The brooch is of first class workmanship and in excellent condition. It came to us from Würzburg.
