ABOUT THIS BROOCH

A tantalizing trio of royal-blue star sapphires makes for the very beautiful and quite unusual starring attraction of this artfully designed and masterfully executed Retro bow pin from the glamorous 1940s. The multi-dimensional design--featuring graceful volutes and sweeping 'ribbons'--is rendered in contrasting rose and yellow gold, accented with platinum for the diamond settings. The three blue star sapphires (all natural, no heat) have a total weight of 5.50 carats. This artsy and sophisticated adornment measures 2 1/4 inches by 1 inch.

About Retro Jewelry

Hollywood glam got creative during the war era, when strategic factors forced jewelers to do without certain materials. Rather than scale back, they took the streamlined shapes of the Art Deco and went big, bold, and gold with them! Retro power pieces segued from the Jazz Age to the Fabulous Fifties, creating many motifs of vintage jewelry along the way.

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.
