ART DECO GIARDINETTO BROOCH CIRCA 1920

$ 18,500

For centuries the Giardinetto brooch has been the quintessential expression of personal style as no two are the same.  Few jewels combine whimsy and serious cachet like these “little gardens”.

This exquisite example features five hand carved gem blooms, each a different variety and each with a rose cut diamond stamen nestled amongst carved nephrite jade leaves.

The basket is magnificent with its delicately designed platinum pierced silhouette encrusted with various sized rose cut diamonds selected to fit design perfectly.

The skill of the maker in finding the balance between materials and colours, between softness and scintillation makes this one of the best.

 

A beautiful celebration of femininity…
