Art Deco Diamond and Sapphire* Lavalière/Brooch
ABOUT THIS JEWELRY
Measuring a striking 2 5/8 inches (including the removable bail), this elegantly elongated and elaborately designed rectangular lavalière and brooch, dating from the 1920s-30s Art Deco period, sparkles up and down with 2.00 carats of bright-white European-cut diamonds accented with a navette-shaped ribbon of seamlessly-set royal blue synthetic* sapphires. Decorative piercing and delicate milgrain details add the finishing flourishes to this fabulous flapper-esque Jazz Age jewel. Hand fabricated in platinum, the removable pin stem is 14K gold, the bail and pin back are 18K gold. The new chain measures 18 inches. *Back in the day, circa 1920s-30s, due to their uniformity of color and flawless clarity, synthetic sapphires were considered a modern improvement over their natural counterparts, their virtually undetectable differences discernible only with a microscope.
