A stunning vintage 14k yellow gold multi-leaf brooch or pin with a 7mm cultured pearl and four diamonds on a textured background, with raised details. It has a great four leaf design with a Florentine texture that has a rich matte finish. The white pearl has a high luster and slight pink overtone. The four diamonds are each approximately .08ct or .32ct total weight by calculation. The diamonds are VS clarity and H-I color. The brooch has a hinged pin stem with a locking C clasp that has good tension. I think this might have been a custom piece of jewelry.
CONDITION: The brooch is in excellent condition and would benefit from a buffing to bring out the rich color. The hinged pin works well and is secure.
SIZE: The brooch measures 2 inches or 51mm x 1 7/8 or 48mm diameter. It weighs approximately 14 grams.
Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
From the first time I watched a classic movie as a young girl, and watched Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new. What you see in my shop is my personal collection. Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
