Fine Art Deco Diamond Onyx Bow Brooch
ABOUT THIS BROOCH
An exemplary treasure from the pinnacle of the Art Deco era. This magnificent bow tie pin from the early-to-mid 1920s displays all of the characteristics which distinguishes Deco jewelry: sophisticated, geometric style, impeccable craftsmanship and top quality materials. The central lozenge shape diamond weighs 1.00 carat and is graded H color, VS2 clarity. The dimensional ribbons of the bow are studded with sparkling European-cut diamonds and 38 contrasting black onyx calibre arranged in a pattern which may have been inspired from Navajo Indian blanket and basket designs - an acknowledged influence in some Deco artworks. A truly wonderful, wearable and collectible jewel.
