Pierced by Love: Art Deco Diamond Onyx Brooch
Being pierced straight through the heart by an arrow may typify a love interest. When that projectile is of platinum and encrusted with sixty-four (64) rose cut diamonds, eight gems of onyx and an agate the intent is not at all in question.
Meticulous and fine craftsmanship accompany the precious materials in this Art Deco period jabot pin brooch. From around the 17th century, jabot pins were originally designed to secure the jabot or ruffle on the front of a gentleman’s shirt of a lady’s dress. The brooch is also referred to as a stock pin and is worn as part of the horse riding ensemble.
In characteristic fashion one of the decorative terminals, in this case that of the vanes or feathers slides off, and the shaft is pushed through the material. The feathers are reinserted onto the shaft and click on to secure. On the reverse a portion of the pin mechanism is of 18k yellow gold.
Date: Circa 1925.
Measurements: 3-1/8 inches (8 cm) in length when worn by 7/16 of an inch (1.1 cm) in width. Weight of 5.1 grams (3.3 dwt).
Hallmarks: French dog's head for platinum.
