Platinum Gem Emerald and Diamond Art Deco Brooch

Platinum Gem Emerald and Diamond Art Deco Brooch
In addition to the streamlined geometric styling, fine Art Deco jewels of the 1920s-30s are noted for their superior gemstones, and here is a splendid case in point. This majestic platinum and diamond brooch showcases a truly magnificent, old mine Colombian emerald from the renowned Muzo mines. Besides possessing the finest, richest green color imaginable (however, photos can’t do justice) and crystalline clarity, it exhibits a very special property, Gota de Aceita. It translates as Drop of Oil in Spanish. We thank emerald expert and director of operations and sales for Muzo International, Ron Ringsrude for the following:

Among connoisseurs and collectors the emerald that exhibits the rare gota de aceite phenomenon is highly prized. First reported in 1945 by gemologist Edward Gubelin, it is a roiled pattern of growth structures that interrupts the light in a delightful liquid-like manner reminiscent of honey or oil; hence the name. In terms of rarity, this phenomenon puts such emeralds in the most treasured and rare categories of collectables; like Kashmir sapphires and Golconda diamonds.

The enchanting 2.00 carat gemstone centers a 2 and 3/8 inch long by 5/8 inch wide work of jewelry art. The brooch is masterfully fashioned and rendered in multi-dimensional platinum and sparkles with 5.00 carats of bright-white high-quality European-cut, single-cut and baguette diamonds. A remarkable and ravishing Art Deco original masterpiece.
