A 1920s natural pearl and diamond brooch. The brooch is set with chalcedony in a carved leaf design set in platinum on 14ct yellow gold. The old European cut diamond is bezel set at the centre of three chalcedony leaves with two natural freshwater pearls of creamy colour and medium lustre. Nine small rose cut diamonds are set in the petals and three small rose cut diamonds are set at the end of the engraved gold frame.
Gone were the empire gowns of the Edwardian Era and in came the shorter, more free flowing flapper dresses with their dropped waists and flirty intentions. As a result the jewellery changed to compliment the latest fashion trends. While old cut gems were still being used, yellow gold was being fazed out and white gold and platinum were taking over the jewellery industry creating long necklaces with tassels on the end (satouirs), line bracelets and elongated earrings to stand out against short cropped hair. Rings were perfectly symmetrical and often featured contrasting stones which really added to the whole new look of the “Jazz Age”.
