Antique 1930s 2.24 ctw Art Deco platinum and pavé set diamond brooch

An incredible Art Deco pavé set diamond brooch with hand-sawn and engraved details and over 2 carats of transitional and single cut diamonds in platinum. This is a masterful piece of American craftsmanship with every detail attended to and each diamond perfectly set. The symmetry and precision of this piece is remarkable and quintessentially "Deco." The brooch is approx. 1 3/4 inches long with a slight steppe-style frame with milgrain detail. The center of the brooch holds the three largest diamonds in floating, bezeled heads. These three stones are transitional cut and total approx. .94 ctw. They are centered in an elongated, octagonal frame with single cut details. The remainder of the brooch is sectioned into tidy compartments, some neatly diamond-filled (there are fifty-six additional diamonds across the rest of the brooch), and others pierced with slivers of open work. The most stunning part of this piece (to me!) are the four hand-carved French curves unfurling across the four corners. I also appreciate the "topography" of this piece, with portions slightly raised or arched above the main body of the brooch. This would be a beautiful bridal accessory, worn either as a brooch or as a pendant (as pictured). Trombone style clasp.

Note: This piece comes with appraisal paperwork for insurance/replacement. You may select to have this piece shipped alone or with a platinum chain in the drop down menu.
