Story

The 1840s witnessed a shift in jewelry design from the romance of the earliest part of the 19th century to a new level of excitement and exuberance of large and dramatic jewelry incorporating sculptural details and curvilinear forms. Repoussé gold was now in vogue for stone settings. Necklines on dresses began dropping and large brooch pendants became de rigueur for the evening.

Sometimes referred to as a bodice brooch, this example is rendered in repoussé 18k yellow gold with lovely accents of amethysts and citrines. Having the advantage of transformable jewelry, the pendant drop can be removed allowing the piece to be worn separately as a smaller brooch and as a pendant suspended from a chain necklet or velvet ribbon.

Scrolling chased borders of repoussé work of leaves and flowers surround a trefoil arrangement of faceted amethysts center around a trillium flower. In addition, three faceted citrines balance out the arrangement. The removable drop replicates the scrolling chased borders and use of amethysts and citrine.
