Vintage 1960s Corletto Portrait Pendant Brooch with Diamonds and Pearls

A mid-century Italian portrait pendant + brooch by Corletto. This painted portrait of a regal looking woman with long, flowing hair is ‘habillé’ or "dressed" with a diamond-set diadem. The portrait is surrounded by a white gold frame, a trim of cultured pearls, and a textured yellow gold mounting with twisted wire surround. The bail can be flipped up or down, allowing the piece to be worn as a brooch or a pendant!

Corletto was founded in 1963 by Oreste Giovanni Corletto and focused on selling Italian-made jewelry to Americans. Corletto jewelry is mostly figural or inspired by nature and his portrait pieces usually feature gentlewomen 'habillé' with diamond earrings, tiaras, or necklaces.
