Story

We have all seen carved opal or emerald, coral or amethyst, but carved sapphire?

Yes, Art Deco in date around 1925, it is a fantastic jabot brooch with hand carved birds, one at each end. Lovingly sculptured from natural sapphires, each bird is distinct.

At the fixed end, a fluffy tailed birds faces its feathery friend. This sapphire is almost entirely blue with some brown deep within the stone, part of the natural inclusions. Even the back is carved!

It sits upon a brand of diamonds and synthetic emeralds (correct for the era).

Opposing is another bird, also perched on a tree, with the white area of the sapphire chosen for its wing area and belly. It too rests upon diamonds and synthetic emeralds.

White gold of 14k is the precious metal and this is one you won't see again.

Details:

Two natural sapphire carved birds
Estimated weight of 22 carats
Twenty four diamonds
A mix of single and rose cuts
Total of .24 carats
Color H-I, clarity VS2-SI2
Six marquise cabochon synthetic emeralds
Total weight of .12 carats
14k White Gold
Circa 1925

Historical Note: The jabot brooch, a 1920's sensation, was a design that used a long straight pin, with one end permanently affixed, and the other removable. The likes of Cartier and Tiffany all had their jabot designs from the lesser to the most magnificent. Often an arrow was the theme and it is easy to see why as it is the perfect shape with the pointed tip at one end and the feathers at the other. Easily affixed to most any garment, the jabot archetype surprising didn't persist much past that inventive period.
