ABOUT THIS BROOCH

Starla, our intrepid in-house gemologist and jewelry researcher, discovered that the designer *William Scheer patented his artful peacock designs back in 1894! The virtually identical twins are masterfully hand fabricated in platinum over 18K yellow gold and are studded throughout with glittering apple green demantoid garnets, icy-white old mine-cut diamonds, and vibrant blue faceted round sapphires. Birds of a feather really do flock together, and although they've stayed together for a century, we will separate them if you so desire for $15,750 each. They each measure just over 2 inches from beak to tail feathers.

*By 1929 William Scheer was the largest manufacturing jeweler in America creating over 50% of the fine jewelry in the country. His prosperous clients were Marcus & Co, Tiffany & Co., Black Starr and Frost, Raymond Yard, Udall & Ballou, Harry Winston, Cartier (New York), Spaulding & Co, C.D. Peacock, Shreve Crump & Low, Galt & Brothers in Washington, D.C., Brock & Co of Los Angeles, Shreve & Co. of San Francisco, just to name some. The majority of William Scheers work was unsigned or only signed by the retailer. They made line bracelets of all widths utilizing all the new fancy cut diamonds, long elaborate diamond necklaces with suspending carved emeralds or detachable diamond plaques, shorter necklaces including carved Indian rubies, emeralds, and sapphires, and endless varieties of brooches with intricate lapidary work. Ornate watches for men with rock crystal and diamonds to ladies baguette watch bracelets and brooches. He created jeweled accessories like handbag frames, cigarette holders and elaborate vanity and cigarette cases after French originals. The quality of his contemporary and chic designs favorably compared with the finest French jewelers.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
