Story

Worthy of uninterrupted study, this superlative French Belle Époque dream of a brooch still rests in its original box.

The epitome of the Belle Époque or Edwardian spirit, this platinum diamond brooch shows off the jeweler's mastery to perfection in hair-fine but sturdy platinum open work in a tableaux for scintillating diamonds.

Two crescent moons oppose each other with an old European cut central diamond of .60 carats catching the eye. Another 106 diamonds all add up to a total of 2.00 carats of wonder.

The diamond are a mix of old European and rose cuts, their color ranks as G-I, and their clarity of VS2-SI3, with the larger diamonds at VS2-SI1. It is simply astonishing the level of apparent delicacy of the platinum "lace".

All hand-made, the symmetrical design with its harmonious balance is a treat for the collector and wearer of the finest.

French in origin, it was exported for sale in Argentina, and the original box in marked to the interior, Carassale, 457 Florida 457, Buenos Aires.
