Retro Ribbon And Bow 18ct Gold Brooch With Diamonds
Giftwrap your lapel in this fun and festive gold brooch from the fabulous Retro period. Artfully stylised in radiant 18ct gold, the multi-dimensional design comprises eight looping bows tied in two undulating ribbons with hollow detailing. Sparkling in the centre is a large round brilliant-cut diamond flaring outward, surrounded by eight smaller ones mounted on shiny gold spikes. This glamorous smile-making adornment is of Portuguese origin, as the stamps suggest, and dates from the 1930s-1950s. This era saw gold return to fashion, as the platinum that defined the previous decade’s Art Deco jewellery was diverted to the war effort. Bold three-dimensional designs with futuristic elements became common, along with softened geometric forms and textured metals. As the war ended, the societal changes were reflected in the period’s highly popular ribbon and bow motif depicted in this cheerful gold brooch. With over half a carat of high-colour diamonds, this ultra-chic vintage stunner can go from day to night. A true heirloom piece that will last for generations without going out of style.
