ART DECO OLD CUT DIAMOND SAPPHIRE PLATINUM PIN BROOCH Handmade Gatsby 1920s One of a Kind Artisan Wedding Anniversary Luxury ANTIQUE JEWELRY NATURAL SAPPHIRES
An exquisitely hand crafted luxurious platinum diamond and earth mined sapphire pin dating to 1910. This beautiful Edwardian brooch sparkles from every angle as the old mine cut diamonds catch the light. The calibre set sapphires cut just to fit the hand made setting are a striking contrast to the fine white diamonds in this antique pin.
The total weight of all the old cut diamonds is 1.44 carats and the sapphires together weigh 0.14 carats. This makes the weight of all the natural untreated earth mined gems which are set in this pretty brooch 1.58 carats. It is in mint condition and has an original hand made safety clasp on the reverse.
This amazingly pretty piece measures 1 3/4" long by 7/8" wide (45mm x 22mm).
This is a rare original item to find on the market today. At the current time most of these style pieces are reproduction and are cast. Worse, many are made with CAD manufacturing techniques and the stones are cast in place. This brooch is an original hand made antique which would be hard to replace with a similar item today as these pieces are highly sought after and in fact, despite the deceptive amount of reproduction on the market, extremely rare.
I love this piece because of how absolutely feminine it is.
