Funny gold bow brooch with diamond, Munich circa 1985

The motif of the bow runs through centuries of jewellery design and has remained popular to this day. Once a favorite of the fun-loving Rococo era, bow forms have experienced a renaissance countless times in the centuries that followed. Like the knot that is always part of a bow, it symbolizes the intimate connection between two people, whether through friendly or romantic love. Gifts of jewellery have always been pledges of such affection. Our pretty brooch also belongs to these sentimental pieces of jewellery, as it is designed as a precious bow. According to the hallmarking, it was made in the Fochtmann jewellery workshop in Munich and came to us from Upper Franconia. In its centre, the solidly crafted brooch of high-carat gold presents a brilliant-cut diamond weighing approximately 0.30 ct. The symbolic bond of the bow is further enhanced by its precious setting: in the language of gemstones, the diamond stands for eternity. This high-quality brooch is therefore a beautiful gift for a special person to whom one feels an eternal bond of loyalty.
