This elegant antique brooch is made out of 18K solid gold*. It dates back from the Art Nouveau period (circa 1900s) whose themes includes scrolls and volutes, chimeras, insects, serpents, foliage and lace designs. Material included gold, sculpted ivory, glass paste, enamel champlevé, the plique-à-jour, etc..

This period is also referred to as the Edwardian period, better known in Anglophone countries. Its form recalls the lace, curving and curling designs of that movement. This is an original piece of jewelry. It is just charming and can be worn to dress up that little black dress.

This beautiful brooch is made out of 18 carat of glowing yellow gold*, shaped as a knot from which emerge three stems holding a natural pearl. The pearls are in good condition with high luster and good nacre. Each pearl is held by three prongs.

The pin closes with a C type closure, typical of the period. It is in excellent condition

Traces of the French eagle head mark, which guarantees its authenticity, are visible on the stem. The brooch was also tested by our experts for solid 18-carat gold content.
