Elegance of the post-war period

Vintage brooch made of gold, diamonds and a pearl, made around 1955

Post-war jewellery playfully turns against the widespread classicism of the oppressive years before and thus testifies to the will for a completely new beginning after the Second World War. With lightness and wit, the privations of the great war were renounced and the future was turned towards, without at the same time forgetting to express the new wealth of the economic miracle in the field of jewellery as well. This brooch from the years around 1955 exudes the spirit of optimism of the post-war period in an exemplary manner. Made of high-carat gold, the piece is designed as a festive bouquet of flowers and branches held together by a large bow. Small, white sparkling diamonds and a shimmering pearl set the composition, adding a cheerful touch. The expressive work is a piece of 1950s jewellery that is as high quality as it is stylish. Its elegant dynamism is just waiting to shine and charm anew on the lapel soon.
