Story

Remind you of the Aegean sea with drifting flotsam and micro life? Or perhaps a speckled robin's egg, or even the evening sky above with its first hints of stars.

Any association that you can conjure, the turquoise in this Art Nouveau brooch holds unmistakable personality and luminous color.

At just under 30 mm across and 21 mm high, it is an impressive specimen of American turquoise. At 44 carats, there are speckles, linear darker inclusions (most are coloration only), two tan and brown matrix areas, and a few surface incisions.

It is bezel set in 14k gold with minute serrations and a frame of tiny fleur-del-lis designs that possess a beautiful texture and deep coloration. These are interspersed with dainty natural seed pearls and old European cut diamonds.

Deliberate contrast in scale between the massive turquoise and the detail of the surround creates an impressive jewel.

The original watch hanger still graces the reverse and can be used to suspend a charm or pearl. Original to the brooch are the pin stem and safety clasp.

If you prefer to wear this as a pendant hung vertically or horizontally, just ask for conversion at no charge.

Chain is for illustration purposes. Ask about our selection in all price ranges.
